It may be that the CLI option was not checked when the i-installer  
did the TeX Configuration step. The easiest way around this is to re- 
run the Configuration stage of the TeX i-package. Do an `Expert'  
install and uncheck everything except but the CLI option. That will  
have the proper changes made to /etc/profile, etc., so that the  
proper paths are followed.

By the way, if the Ghostscript i-package is installed I think /usr/ 
local/bin/ should also be part of the $PATH. Is that there?

Good Luck,
