Not at all. Given the noise about fink conflicts I can understand your

If you don't install any TeX-related stuff through fink, everything 
should be fine. Even if you do, there should be no conflicts on an 
application level. If fink messes with your path, I suppose there is a 
small chance it will overwrite Gerben's change---but even if it does 
that's easy to fix (and will only affect things if you use TeX on the 
command line). My advice would be to plunge right in.

Good luck!
