Did you install all the i-Packages corresponding to the dependencies  
of autotrace? There seem to be a fair number of them (pstoedit,  
ImageMagick, libpng, FreeType). From the ReadMe of the autotrace i- 

• Linked dynamically against pstoedit
• Linked dynamically against ImageMagick 2.6.2-8 (libMagick.10.dylib)
• Linked statically against libpng-1.2.8.
• Check for availability of required X11 install
• First fat release (i386 and ppc).
• Recompiled against ImageMagick 6.2.5-5. Tell autotrace i-Package it  
depends on libMagick.9.dylib instead of libMagick.6.dylib
• Tell autotrace i-Package it depends on libfreetype.6.dylib instead  
of libfreetype.dylib
• Autotrace 0.31.1 contains a broken test in configure for the  
version of ImageMagick. I have worked around this bug.

That said, personally I find the output of potrace more satisfactory  
than that of autotrace.
