Yeeeeeep !
You got it !!!
there were a ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist with a setting for TEXINPUTS !

You know what ? I'm Happy !
First, all works and
Second, I learned something: ~/.MacOSX/ exists, and may have some role 
wrt environment variables
I really don't know which application did this, but I don't need to 
understand everything ! If it happen again, I'll manage to find out who 
and why, but up to now, I don't care :-))

Thanks again !!!
