Looks to me like you have not reset the paths properly for TeXLive in  
whatever program (TeXShop?) is calling your TeX engine; it's still  
calling stuff out of a teTeX hierarchy:

The texmf.gwtex dir under TeXLive should be a subdirectory of /usr/ 

Also make sure you are now calling TeX binaries out of /usr/local/ 
TeXLive/bin/i386-apple-darwin-current since you're on a shiny new  
Intel machine now.  Otherwise you will be running PPC binaries under  
Rosetta, which are much slower than the native binaries.
