In fact, most of my file references point to /usr/local/texlive/2010/bin/x86_64-darwin and everything works great. I did do some clean up though prior to installing texlive 2010 by having fink and macports uninstall any tex-related software. It could be something as simple as using inbcompatible versions of two programs.
Well, /usr/texbin is a (doubly indirect) symbolic link to the x86_64-darwin directory. What it points to is controlled by the System Preferences->TeX Distribution Preference Pane. That is so you can actually have multiple TeX distributions.
in Terminal and it should return
since /usr/texbin is placed in the PATH.
