If ~/Library/texmf/tex/misc does not exist, this command creates a 
symlink ~/Library/texmf/tex/misc which points to "mypath", which could 
be ~/Work/Base in Alain's case. It's more detailed than Herb's 

As you mention, it works, of course. It only makes the file system's 
layout a bit exotic with these 'loop-back' kind symlinks. I'd just move 
my working place ...

dvips uses different environment variables to search for its files. One 
of them is TEXPSHEADERS, other are some *FONTS. An easy way to retrieve 
the values a programme (probably) recognizes is:

	strings `which <programme name>` | grep '[A-Z][A-Z][A-Z]'



   It's not the valleys in life I dread so much as the dips.
