No, though pgAdmin will look in it's own directory as well. Under the
hood of OSX, in it's BSD roots you'll find it has an executable search
path like DOS/Windows/Unix. You can check the path with something like
"echo $PATH" from a command prompt. What I don't know offhand, is
whether the path has any effect on things started from the Finder, or if
it does, what shell is everything running under (and therefore, what
script should be modified)?

I will check this out when I'm next on my Mac.
