[OS X TeX] Cannot open Ghostscript for piped input! (and PATH)

That was it: my PATH did not include /usr/local/bin. Thanks!

That opens another TeX-related mystery: my ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist  
defines my PATH by

	<key>PATH</key>
	<string>/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/Users/lcp/isabelle/Repos/ 
Distribution/bin</string>

and my .bashrc augments it using

PATH=$HOME/bin:/Users/lcp/isabelle/Repos/Distribution/bin:/usr/local/ 
bin/:$PATH

and (for Fink)

. /sw/bin/init.sh

but the resulting PATH is

/sw/bin:/sw/sbin:/Users/lcp/bin:/Users/lcp/isabelle/Repos/Distribution/ 
bin:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple- 
darwin-current:/usr/X11R6/bin

In particular, I have no idea how  
/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current ended up on my path.  
I even tried

	grep powerpc-apple-darwin-current -r .

from my home directory but found nothing plausible.

Anybody have any idea?
