you do not need the package pst-pdf when compiling with xelatex.

you should install MacTeX 2011, see http://tug.org/mactex/

that file is only needed if you run your examples with

pdflatex --shell-escape <file>

But it isn't installed in your TeX distribution. However, install
MacTeX2011 and everything should be fine.
See also
for running it with pdflatex. As I already wrote, using xelatex
is the easier way.
