Then my picture ran the way it was supposed to (ie, the output looked like Herbert's).  Running kpsewhich pst3d-solides.tex again in terminal, I still got no response (by which I mean it returned only a prompt).  But when I ran kpsewhich pstricks.sty, it responded with a location.

How can I tell which ones I can safely trust to the TDS and eliminate from my own folders?  

I have a piece of software I use to try to keep font support files rational, but it works more generally. One of its menu selections (File->Find All Duplicates) finds all duplicate names within your texmf trees and show you the result as a text file. (This takes a few minutes to complete.) It is not polished software, but it works even if it is not pretty. Things to know:

1. For Mac OS X only.
2, For MacTeX 2010 and above only.
3. You need to keep the application TeXFontUtility.app in the same folder as TeXFonts.db or it won't run.
