The Mac OS X installer copies the PATH settings to ~/.profile. However, on my system this didn't have any effect, since there is a ~/.bash_profile which takes precedence over ~/.profile. This should be considered by the installer.

For a complete overview of bash config files (there are more variations) that should be considered in the installer, see:
