out the definition of the macro between
and use the optional argument of pstricks for the color names
(see example)

and you should have a look at pstricks-add, it has better support
for pie charts.



% #1 = Values, #2 = Labels, #3 = Styles, #4 = Starting angle
% To compute in \pst at dimd the sum of all the values
\pst at dimd=\z@
\Multido{\iNbValues=\z at +\@ne}{9999}{%
	\csname check#1\endcsname(\multidocount)%
\advance\pst at dimd by \cachedata\p@
\degrees[\pst at number{\pst at dimd}]
% To compute the starting angle
\pst at dimh=\pst at dimd
\divide\pst at dimh by 360
\multiply\pst at dimh by #4
% Loop on slices
	% Slice
	\pst at dimg=\pst at dimh
	\csname check#1\endcsname(\multidocount)%
	\advance\pst at dimh by \cachedata\p@
	\csname check#3\endcsname(\multidocount)%
		{\pst at number{\pst at dimg}}{\pst at number{\pst at dimh}}
	% Label
	\advance\pst at dimg\pst at dimh
	\divide\pst at dimg\tw@
	\uput{2.2}[\pst at number{\pst at dimg}](0,0){%
		\large\csname #2\endcsname(\multidocount)}}

\readarray{Values}{32.7 & 19.3 & 12.4 & 27.6 & 6.9}
% Don't leave blanks between labels and between styles!

\newpsstyle{}{}% For undefined styles
