The same thing should work in OSX.

In the terminal type

which ps2pdf

where ps2pdf

If the computer can't find them but they are installed there
is something wrong with your paths.

In mine I get

computer[user]% which ps2pdf
computer[user]% where ps2pdf

If you don't want to use the command line then drag and
drop onto the copy of ps2pdf that comes with MacGhostView
