It's not that easy: you need, as I was complaining on the MacTeX  
list, a decent ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist for this to work. (I think  
I made earlier this year enough experiments on this topic in Mac OS X  
10.4/Tiger in bash or tcsh based environments to state this. But I am  
still curious if there is a way to solve this with RC files!)

And, Bruno, please learn that Gerben Wierda changed some time ago i- 
Installer in a way that is does not rely on false settings in  
~/.MacOSX/environment.plist. ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist is no more a  
bad thing for i-Installer -- it can be a threat for the runtime  
environment though! Meanwhile there are a few GUI applications to  
correct this file if needed.
