Maybe I overlooked this in the long thread, but did you try the 
following really basic things:
Type "which latex" and make sure you don't  have latex or pdflatex 
aliased or symlinked to anything else (pdfetex) in your initialization 
files. Even if you PATH is correct, there might be aliases...
Specify the path with the command, e.g. /usr/local/bin/latex (I use 
fink's tetex, so my paths are different, but I think that's what GWtex 
has, right?)
Try alternatives to latex that should do the same thing:
your-full-path/pdfelatex -output-format=dvi  filename
your-full-path/pdfelatex -progname=latex filename

Maybe one of these works and one can go from there with a diagonosis.
