Howdy,

So, are you always getting CRLF in you emails? Even in attachments? Or is that some setting you had set in AlphaX? If the latter, change it posthaste; OS X is a Unix system.

Good Luck,

Then I moved them to \etc. (I didn't move csh.logout and bashrc, because they were identical to the files already there). I checked paths.d, which contained the TeX file, which had the content Ettore said it should have. Then I set the settings in the terminal back to using the default shell. Then I closed the terminal and restarted it. All of the complaints about missing things stopped. And here is what it said when I inquired about the path:
