Assuming you used the built-in assistant to do the transfer it sounds like
it doesn't transfer things in /usr/local/ from the old machine. I think
you'll have to use the i-installer to download and install TeX again. Make
sure you get the ghostscript installed also. After that what else you
install is up to you.
