groups(1) does work as well, but it's deprecated in favour of id(1) (at least as of OSX 10.7).

This only works assuming that the contents you describe are in fact the default PATH value for the OP's login shell; this might not be the case depending on his/her setup (especially if the OP is not the admin on the system and is using, for example, a login shell on an ISP-provided terminal account).

Creating a new user would only work if the default shell for a new user is the same shell as the one the OP is using. Also, it has the overhead of creating a user, which the OP might not have permissions to do.

comment How can I tell if a user's MS Entourage 2008 (Mac OS X) has been patched to use EWS
Unfortunatley, Snow Leopard isn't an option. The desktop platform in question is PPC based.
