Hi Walt,

    compile-time path = /usr/local/Build/i386/TeXLive.tl2005/share/texmf:/var/tmp/texfonts

The compile-time path is not normally relevant.  Instead, the tex
binaries are "self-locating".  So if the main tree is
/usr/local/texlive/2005, the binaries should be at
/usr/local/texlive/2005/bin/powerpc-darwin (or i386-darwin).  Are they?

Actually, never mind.  I believe the last line shows the problem:

Try changing your envvar setting to include a trailing :, like this:

As you may or may not have noticed, TL is set up to search $HOME/texmf
automatically.  So if you used `texmf' instead of `TEX' for your
directory name, you wouldn't have to have any envvars at all.

By the way, what generated all that debug output?  It is very nice.
