~/.MacOSX/environment.plist is obsolete
From Mountain Lion on, the
~/.MacOSX/environment.plist method has been replaced by ""launchctl" commands.
See http://codepulsive.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/setting-environment-variables-in-os-x.html for a discussion of the new launchctl method for setting environment variables. The basic mechanism is at the beginning of that post.
~/.MacOSX/environment.plist is a file that sets default variables for every application. A sample
~/.MacOSX/environment.plist file can be found here; you may have to <ctrl>-click the link to save this file to your computer. More details on
~/.MacOSX/environment.plist files can be found here.
Note: Any changes to
~/.MacOSX/environment.plist require that you logout and login again for the change to take effect.

Caution: In my case this caused Bibtex to stop working when called by Lyx. It also killed preview generation in BibDesk. It might work if you use .:~/Library/texmf/bibtex/bib::, anything which makes Bibtex search in the working directory also. However, I haven't tested this, I just got rid of these entries in the environment.plist, logged out and back in and everything worked perfectly again.
- To enable LyX to find other class and style files automatically, add
