Actually when the patch first came out for the pdf problem, I downloaded 
the patched version of teTeX and started compiling it (part way through 
I realized that Richard Koch and Co. had already recompiled it).  In any 
case at that time, I noted that the ghostscript was compiled without the 
x11 interface on.  This leads to my next question: do TeXshop and teTeX 
work with the version 7.0 ghostscript you installed?
