OK you have found something. But! I'm using 'pdflatex' so gs 
shouldn't be part of the picture. Anyway...

My gs was in fink and had this problem:

$ /sw/bin/gs
dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/X11/lib/libpng12.0.dylib
   Referenced from: /usr/X11/lib/libcairo.2.dylib
   Reason: Incompatible library version: libcairo.2.dylib requires 
version 45.0.0 or later, but libpng12.0.dylib provides version 36.0.0
Trace/BPT trap

I installed gs from MacTex and EVERYTHING WORKED! Thank you. It's 
been a flurry of emails and a few days but thanks for helping figure 
this out.

Phew. Not sure why my default gs isn't working. I'd like to fix this 
as a lot of things rely on it: graphicsmagick, gv, etc.
