if I understand your problem, you need a way to get some environment variables right which usually are set in .profile or .cshrc.

to this end you need a directory `.MacOSX' in your home dir and there a file `environment.plist'. this can best be edited with the uitility `Property Editor' which is in `/Developer/Applications/Utilities'.

hope this helps
