That sounds like your terminal is actually using tcsh instead of bash.
"export" is a builtin command in bash, so it should always be available.
Older versions of OS X defaulted to tcsh in the terminal, newer versions
default to bash.

You can type
echo $0
to see which shell your terminal is currently running:

Welcome to Darwin!
mystic:/Users/jrm21$ echo $0
zsh
mystic:/Users/jrm21$ tcsh
[mystic:~] jrm21% echo $0
tcsh
[mystic:~] jrm21% exit
exit
mystic:/Users/jrm21$ bash
bash-2.05b$ echo $0
bash
bash-2.05b$

(zsh is another bash-compatible shell).

If you want to use csh/tcsh, you can instead source the "setup.csh"
file, but if you don't already know and prefer csh, I suggest using
bash.
