This was my point.  That there were conflicting versions or missing links.  This is why I suggested if all else failed to uninstall everything tex-related and do a fresh install of the newest version.  Yes, he couldn’t run multiple versions of LaTeX anymore, but I don’t know too many people who do this.

It may be that you either have more than one Ghostscript installed (you never said if you have a Fink version as well as one installed by MacTeX which is installed in /usr/local/bin/). I remember you said you had the default gs path in LaTeXiT (since you removed the preference file) but if you only have the Fink version that path will be wrong. Also, if you have both set up you can get into worse problems since with the default gs path in LaTeXiT it will call the MacTeX gs but if that gs simply opens other file (e.g., configurations) it may very well assume the files are found along the usual PATH and then you will get a mixed set since Fink installs /sw/bin in the PATH before everything else.
