Do you mean xterm from X11? If so, does Terminal.app show the same behavior ---that is, do you have to sudo also for latex to find article.cls?

Anyway, here is my output from xterm:

bash-3.2$ which latex
bash-3.2$ kpsewhich article.cls
bash-3.2$ which dvips

I don't know what to say ---here is my output

ll /usr/local/texlive/
drwxr-xr-x  10 root  wheel         340 Nov 10 20:59 ./
drwxr-xr-x  12 root  wheel         408 Nov  3 00:53 ../
drwxr-xr-x  22 root  wheel         748 May 13  2010 2009/
drwxr-xr-x  23 root  wheel         782 Jan  9 23:37 2010/
drwxr-xr-x  10 root  wheel         340 Jan  9 23:37 texmf-local/

Do you, by any chance, have a ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist?

??? dvips is installed by TeXLive ---and hence MacTeX (see above).

I still think the TeX on Mac OS mailing list is an appropriate place to help you with this if you're interested.
