Hi,

as far as I know, the Fink distro is not integrated into the TeX  
Distribution Panel. As it puts itself before anything else in the  
path, it is absolutely possible to have a TeXLive-based distro  
checked there but still have a system that relies on version  
installed by find.

Best,

Alex
