I wouldn't dispute either.

tex-live  	TeX Live development and testing.
texhax  	General TeX discussion and questions

I didn't work on Mac but I work with both TeX Live and MiKTeX. If
we're talking about TDS compliant distro (as I understand both TeX
Live and MiKTeX are TDS compliant)  then my first advice concerns both
so this should go in texhax mailing list. As for my second advice
then, yes, it is TeX Live specific question and should be ask here, of

I mentioned advices in the order of preference (the first is most acceptable).

Without details it is hard to give another advice (I consider use of
command line options or environment variables as the worst way of
every day latex/bibtex practice).

WBR, Vladimir Lomov
