The files in /etc should not have been edited. Fink is not known for editing or changing anything outside /sw. In theory the tcsh should read /etc/paths.d via /usr/libexec/path_helper called by /etc/csh.login (just like bash or zsh for the other family of initialization files). 

I asked John to check if there is a .tcshrc file in $HOME.
