[OS X TeX] Sierra and Command Line

This problem only concerns users who install Sierra on a new disk, rather than updating an existing system to Sierra.

If these users install MacTeX-2016 or BasicTeX-2016, they will discover that they cannot typeset from the command line. To fix this problem, download FixLink from my web site:

This is a very, very small download package; install the package.

Eventually this fix will be moved to BasicTeX-2016 and MacTeX-2016, but before remaking those packages, I want to make sure this one creates no problems. I certainly tested FixLink on my own machine.

The technical problem is that Sierra does not create the folders /etc/paths.d or /etc/manpaths.d, so our packages have to create them. XQuartz creates the folders as well, so another solution is to install XQuartz before installing BasicTeX or MacTeX.
