The texi2dvi issue has been discussed in the past:
I inspected the macTeX-2010.mkpg with Pacifist. It does not contain the texi2dvi script.
MacTeX uses the latexmk perl script.
/usr/texbin is on my PATH and running which -a texi2dvi gives: /usr/bin/texi2dvi
AFAICT, texi2dvi is Apple provided. It is also quite old (at least if the 2004 refers to texi2dvi):
Running texi2dvi --version in Terminal gives:
texi2dvi (GNU Texinfo 4.8) 1.34

I don't know where the .old versions come from.
