What is 'which gs' returning in Terminal? Is the string before /gs 
contained in the output of this command in Terminal?

	defaults read "${HOME}/.MacOSX/environment" PATH

I think Ghostscript from the i-Package gets installed in 
/usr/local/bin. This element has to be contained in the UNIX search 
path. Since TeXShop and other Mac OS X applications are a bit different 
you have to tell them via the file ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist where 
these tools can search for the usual UNIX commands.

To open the file just type 'open ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist' -- if you 
have the Developer Tools installed a special tool will open.
