bash looks in $HOME/.profile, tcsh will look in $HOME/.cshrc.
They both use a different syntax... bash has
PATH=.....
while tcsh has
setenv PATH ....

tcsh used to be the default terminal shell in older versions of OS X,
but apple have come to their senses and are now defaulting to
a "sh-compatible" shell, bash. It was suggested to me that modifying the
path in $HOME/.profile would affect all applications after you next log
in, but I can't confirm that this is the case.
