That is precisely the reason. kpsewhich isn't found by the shell, and  
it's this commands which is used to find anything TeX-related  
(formats, fonts, LaTeX packages, etc.).

You absolutely need to sort this problem out. Without PATH set  
correctly, you'll never get a working TeX system.

What do you get with "echo $PATH" and "echo $MANPATH"? You should get  
at least:

$ echo $PATH
$ echo $MANPATH

Could you post the content of /etc/csh.login and /etc/profile? Are you  
absolutely sure you've got no ~/.profile, ~/.bashrc, or any file of  
the sort?

Did you by the way use (I don't remember the name) Setup Assistant or  
whatever it's called which transfers automatically the content of your  
former Mac to the Mac through a FireWire connection? That's known to  
have created messed up system in the past.
