I initially thought that the source of the difference between my output and Herbert's was a driver problem.  But my local tech guy suggested it was a matter of not having the most recent software.
In the meantime, the new MacTex 2010 came out, so I downloaded it.  When I then tried to run the same code, I got the error message
> /usr/texbin/dvips: ! Couldn't find header file: solides.pro

Here is my file list from the run:

(I simply followed directions on the download, meaning that I let the installer install the stuff).
