How did you install on the G5: via i-Installer again, or did you use 
the Mac OS X Setup Assistant described here 
<http://www.apple.com/macosx/upgrade/upgradetonewmac.html>? The latter 
might have problems with TeX files, which partly live in the hidden

Normally it's at 
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/tex/latex/lm/lmodern.sty. Do you 
have this file on your G5?

If you used i-Installer, did you select Simple or Expert install, and, 
if you selected Expert, did you check "TeX Support: Latin Modern
