 From the `man which` command

      which -- locate a program file in the user's path

This to me leads me to suspect that /Applications/MAMP/conf is not  
where php really is.

Can you try:
$which -a php
This will list all the locations of php it knows about.

Can you also do:
/Applications/MAMP/conf/php -v
	and ...
file /Applications/MAMP/conf/php
ls -la /Applications/MAMP/conf

It looks like the MAMP people have decided to store things in some  
interesting (IMHO) places.  Try editing your path to this:

export PATH=/Applications/MAMP/Library/bin:/Applications/MAMP/bin/php5/ 

Put that as the last line in your profile, replacing the other one
