1. My distribution will install properly, wth the exception of setting 
the PATH for the Terminal application (login shell).

2. When you use TeXShop.app, it will all just work, because TeXShop 
itself sets a correct PATH before running TeX.

3. To use my distribution from Terminal.app, you need to make sure that 
/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current and /usr/local/bin are 
added to your shell's PATH setting.

Download the script from ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/macosx/settcshtexpath

Then in a Terminal window, cd to the directory where you have downloaded 
the script. Type (3 statements, each is one line, Mail.app may break 
them up, in which case you haev to rejoin it

	sudo cp ./settcshtexpath 

	sudo chmod +x /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-

	sudo /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/settcshtexpath

Now, restart Terminal and TeX will be available from the command line.

4. When you use iTeXMac you have to do some specific fiddling as it 
seems to use a file that has disappeared between 10.1.5 and 10.2.

In short: my distribution combined with TeXShop.app will just work.
