I suppose you are working on a Linux system.
with TeXLive 2007 you get an old but still working
installation with all pstricks files.

vaucanson is not on TeXLive, you have to download it from
Put the files into the new directory

then run texhash to update the TeX database.
Now all should work well. If not then show your
example file with the error message and the file list.
You can get it from the logfile when writing \listfiles
as first line into your document.
