In your ~/.bash_profile (or ~/.profile if you don't have a ~/.bash_profile) force /usr/texbin to the head of $PATH by inserting the line

export PATH=/usr/texbin:$PATH

and that should do it.

Just curious... is there a reason you need ContextMinimals since Context comes as part of TeX Live?

Good Luck,
