That's the trick.  Adding -R0 to dvips lets it find the file  
correctly.  So I replaced the absolute reference in the .sty file  
with just the filename (tree-divps.pro) and put the prolog file in ~/ 
Library/texmf/dvips/local and now it works.

I still can't my system to find the files I installed (and have been  
using for some time) for the Adobe Garamond and Warnock Pro fonts,  
but that seems to be quite a different issue.
