thanks for the meaningful and helpful answer. Since revolution allows  
manipulation of shell environment variables,
adding the revolution code line
       put "/usr/texbin:" & $PATH into $PATH
where & is the concatenation operator, made the pdflatex command usable.

Thanks again for the good help.
