Texlive: kile do not find koma-script files

Just to be sure, is it the port "kde4-kile" which is the newest one, or the port "kile", which is pretty old and still based on kde3 ? What I write below is mainly concerning kde4-kile, but may also be true for the older one.

From the start, kile installed with Macports is not supposed to use an external tex installation in /usr/local, and would use the one installed from Macports. In the case kile points to this external installation (which can be checked in the menu Settings->System Check... ), it would mean that it is not a standard installation. 

This said, the main paths for kile are set in a file called kilestdtools.rc, which should be located in /opt/local/share/apps/kile/kilestdtools.rc for a standard prefix. The path to the tex install could be changed in there. However, a manual change in this file may be overwritten by an upgrade of the port when it occurs.

It wasn't able to find any of the koma-script files. But those files were present as I see them in /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-dist/tex/latex/koma-script/ . Since I couldn't find any solution I decided to update from TexLive2011 to TexLive2012. I followed the simple instruction indicated here:  http://tug.org/mactex/ . Installation successful but the .profile file was not updated, it still pointed to the old version of TexLive2011. The same for all the binaries in /opt/local/bin/ . I also removed the 2011 version but still they use the old version.
