There are three different Mac installer types currently in use:

- command-line installer (.tar)
- disk image (version 1.7 only - I'm not making any more of these)
- graphical installer (recent nightly builds, depending on platform
and whether I remembered to create the package)

The command-line installer will always default to
/usr/local/phenix-<version>.  If run from a graphical login, it will
also generate /Applications/PHENIX-<version> with an icon launcher,
but no other files.  The graphical installers install the entire
distribution in /Applications, with most of it hidden in the
"Contents" directory.

So if you're using the command-line version, you should do this:

  source /usr/local/phenix-<version>/phenix_env.sh

and for the graphical installer:

  source /Applications/PHENIX-<version>/Contents/phenix-<version>/phenix_env.sh
