[OS X TeX] /sw/bin/init.csh

All Fink stuff is installed in /sw. 
/sw/bin/init.csh is the command to set up the right path to the executables in Fink. It is nothing directly to do with TeX. 

What you have, I suspect, is a confused installation of parts of Fink, i-installer, and MacTex, which you need to disentangle.

I can not figure out what it is and couldn't find anything on the internet or the archive of this list (looked back six months). On this machine, I had previously Greben's I-installer, prior to that at some point I used also Fink, and until couple of years ago I had AlphaX installed on my hard drive. Anything they have done somewhere?
