Paul's setup seems fairly complicated, unstable and, from the TeX  
point of view, even dangerous: a mixture of Fink's TeX, Gerben  
Wierda's TeX, of system-wide and per-user texmf trees. If at some  
point the foo vs. foo-sys issue shows up, complete debacle is to be  

In any case, the way Paul's setup is configured for now, launching  
TeX from either TeXShop or the command-line means not knowing what  
will happen and hoping for the best, with fingers crossed.

I think there is a specific Fink package (system-tetex <http:// 
pdb.finkproject.org/pdb/package.php/system-tetex>) designed to play  
nice with Gerben's TeX i-Package. I would suggest uninstalling TeX  
completely (on both the Fink and i-Installer sides), studying the  
docs for Fink and gwTeX carefully, then reinstalling gwTeX, then  
Fink's system-tetex, and only afterwards the additional font and its  
support files; and also, of course, testing that the system works at  
each intermediate step of the installation.
