I guess that installing 10.1 overwrites the global init files. There is 
a script in TeXGSInstaller that fixes this. Re-install TeXGSInstaller or 
run the following perl script.


The log out and log in and it should work.

Secondly, I haven;t tested yet, but it could be that 10.1 upgrade does 
damage /usr/local contents. In that case, only reinstalling will help.
