Dunno, give us more information, and we'll tell you ;-)

1 - How did you install 10.3.2? Straight update, archive & install, or 
(I always forget what the third option is).
2 - In case of the archive & install, I believe the /usr/local 
directory is also moved (but still invisible) to the archive with you 
old install. If you didn't customise that part (say add stuff to 
texmf.local, or change your texmf.cnf files), the easiest thing is 
probably to start your i-Installer, and install TeX & GhostScript 
again. Move everything you want from the archived install and trash it. 
That should remove the old TeX install. This of course only works when 
the original install was done with i-Installer, not Fink.
3 - While you're at it, 10.3.4 is current, and includes some important 
security fixes (be sure to install _all_ security fixes, as the latest 
fixes aren't in the 10.3.4 update).
