Those so-called "dot" files like ~/.login, ~/.profile, ~/.cshrc, etc.

Yes. At least in my understanding. When I am invoking 'asy ... <some  
file>' then I don't expect pdflatex to be run. Which I did manually  
before to (re-)create the ASY file.

MacPorts offers 1.88, Fink has 1.53 – I'll try to fetch the source (a  
few other sources/packages are necessary!) and see how installation  
works. But: I do not use the TeX preferences pane. And I am sure that  
you'd first need to uninstall the asymptote package with tlmgr or TLU  
before installing a new version. Tlmgr could completely fail to work  
when it finds something foreign in place of its own material... (And I  
wonder why Mail chose that dilemma signature!)
