Hello George, *,

well, first of all, I have to apologise for answering this late. :( I
was into too many projects -- both, private and business -- that kept me
from looking into the problems much earlier. Again, sorry about that. :(

Now that it's that time of the year again, I had a look at the new
MacTeX version prior to the new release, and I must say, of course,
George was right. My $PATH had indeed been corrupted by MacPorts. I
managed to fix it, and everything works fine again.
