Yes. That is why I assumed the problem had rto do with biblatex's

I don't know what paths are explored by pdflatex or what "other" 
engines refer to. Perhaps you only meant that runing # texhash should 
take care of paths. But it does not seem to:

  # texhash
  texhash: Updating /usr/local/share/texmf/ls-R... 
  texhash: Updating /var/lib/texmf/ls-R-TEXMFMAIN... 
  texhash: Updating /var/lib/texmf/ls-R-TEXLIVE... 
  texhash: Updating /var/lib/texmf/ls-R... 
  texhash: Done.


  $ echo $TEXINPUTS

but when I run latex command on a .tex file containing citations I get:

  ERROR: LaTeX Error: File `biblatex.sty' not found.

Are you saying that it makes no difference that my path is 
/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf even though the biblatex.sty file is 
actually located in 
/usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/tex/latex/biblatex/? Excuse my 
ignorance, but if the path is .../2011/texmf/ how can it find a file 
in .../2011/texmf-dist/tex/latex/biblatex/? It seems to me 
biblatex.sty is not in biblatex's environment, but surely I must be
