I am trying to use textmate from commandline as: mate file.txt but it doesn't work anymore after adding /sw/lib to my DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH. This is annoying because I want to be able add "/sw/lib" to my path as I have some programs there I want to use. How can I fix this issue:

dyld: Symbol not found: __cg_TIFFClientOpen
  Referenced from: /System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/ImageIO.framework/Versions/A/ImageIO
  Expected in: /sw/lib/libTIFF.dylib

I had the same error, I just removed /sw/lib from the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH and it now works. In my case /sw/lib was added to DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH in the .bashrc file which is read each time I start a terminal session. Now I don't know whether there will be side effects on other fink softwares... I'll let you know if I find anything.
