This is really more of an UNIX & Mac OS X question.

I'm trying out an already-built executable of BJam on my Mac OS X
10.2.6 system. I want to define BOOST_ROOT, etc., so the Jamfiles can
see them. However, I can't get my shell (bash) to read the information
off a dotfile when I open a terminal window. (I can get it to work
when I enter stuff manually.) The system reads the additions of my
PATH variable just fine, though. Do I need to do a total reboot (I've
logged out and back in, but not rebooted), or am I writing the
exporting commands wrong, or am I using the wrong dotfiles? (I used to
remember UNIX so well....)

BJam gives a warning about the Python shell variables not being
defined. The suggested values are within a framework. Are there
copies of the Python headers in the conventional spots I can use
