You need to add ~/Library/texmf/bibtex/bib to the variable BIBINPUTS, 
either in texmf.cnf or in your .bashrc/calling script.

You have two different installations of tex on your computer. By default 
the old distribution is used. When you run setuptex (with appropriate 
arguments) the new distribution is used first.
