[OS X TeX] Problem with dvips and shak(new)

To help out Mauro Cereda with implementing the skak package and skaknew
type1 fonts to print PGN formatted chess games with LaTeX I dowloaded them
and have installed them on my machine. I've got most things going under
pdflatex but need to go the latex+ghostscript route to use a few of the
features that need pstricks (Once I get that working I'll try to add \ifpdf
testing and use pdftricks but one thing at a time). The file compiles fine
under altpdflatex but dvips has a problem and I get the console output:

### /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/dvips -R -Poutline  -o
/tmp/altpdflatex.2526-1104530054/tuggame.ps tuggame.dvi
This is dvips(k) 5.94b Copyright 2004 Radical Eye Software
' TeX output 2004.12.31:1554' -> /tmp/altpdflatex.2526-1104530054/tuggame.ps
/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/dvips: ! Couldn't find
header file SkakNew-Diagram
### FAILED to generate /tmp/altpdflatex.2526-1104530054/tuggame.ps ().

I'm not familiar with dvips since I usually go the pdflatex route. Is there
something I haven't installed to use the SkakNew-Diagram font with dvips?
Like I said, it works fine with pdflatex unless I try to use a feature that
needs pstricks.

The use of pstricks for the feature is buried in the skak package file so
I'd like to straighten that out before hacking that part of the package.

Good Luck,
