Again, probably irrelevant, but just in case: when you do an Archive  
& Install of OS X, the whole gwTeX tree in /usr/local/teTeX is  
displaced to a location (/Previous Systems/Previous System 1/usr/ 
local/teTeX IIRC) where it is invisible and can no longer be used.  
Which makes me wonder: does Migration Assistant displace the gwTeX  
tree inside /usr/local/teTeX to the new computer, and, if yes, is the  
executable bit of the binaries inside /usr/local/teTeX/bin set  
appropriately and is the ownership correct as well?

Normally, setting the ownership of the gwTeX tree is one of the steps  
at the end of the installation of the TeX i-Package in Expert mode.  
Given the "experimental" nature of TeX compared with other standard,  
GUI Mac software, I must admit I wouldn't have trusted Migration  
Assistant to deal with it correctly and I would have done a clean  
install instead on the new Mac. Or is this what you did?

For example, inside /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin- 
current/ I get, from "ls -l",

lrwxr-xr-x   1 root      admin        7 Nov  2 17:10 latex -> pdfetex

Is it the same for you?
