I agree with Peter here: you seem to have an alternate texmf tree in  
your home directory, and the files there are used in place of those  
provided by gwTeX, in case there is duplication.

For example, url.sty is taken from your home directory while there is  
already one, possibly more up-to-date, at /Library/teTeX/share/ 
texmf.tetex/tex/latex/url/url.sty. Generally it's better to stick to  
the versions included in gwTeX, unless you've a good reason to do  
otherwise (for example requiring an extended beta version of a  
package): the advantage of gwTeX being based on teTeX and TeXLive is  
that it uses a well-tested consistent distribution, where all the  
packages have been checked to work together well.

Back to your original problem: the package pstimes.sty is the  
culprit, it seems to require .fd (font definition) files and/or .tfm  
(TeX font metrics) files that are absent. Use the mathptmx package  
instead; see /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/doc/latex/psnfss/
