Do you see the string "DocView" appear in mode-line? Does the view  
switch when you type C-c C-c? Did you try to use Doc-view in an Emacs  
you launched with -q, i.e., with no personal configuration?

For me it works on Mac OS X 10.5.8 PPC with GNU Emacs 23.1.90  
(although I switched off initial doc-view-mode for some file types).  
With "Carbon Emacs 23.1.90" you probably mean the "AppKit Emacs" by  
YAMAMOTO Mitsuharu, don't you? It's not meant for productive use (for  
me it swallows the first ESC or C-x so that I would have to type them
