The Liftweb installer for Mac OS X generates a .bash_profile file whether .profile exists already or not. As a result of this, the shell will ignore the preexisting environment variables defined by .profile. The installer should detect the presence of .profile, and perform an append operation instead.
Haven't seen the details but Macport installer does something very similar. Could be useful.
See the function write_setting() in http://trac.macports.org/browser/trunk/base/portmgr/dmg/postflight
bah - this issue is actually arisen from my background... I didnt realize that some people use .profile to store their configuration - I thought everyone used .bash_profile... not to worry, its just a case of changing some of the installer code to check for a .profile as well as .bash_profile.
All peace :)
doh - tottaly forgot this was outstanding... will get to it in the next few days.
