Configure would be enough.

Two more remarks:

1. if it is indeed the case that this is a result of the MacTeX  
installer, you can understand my feeling about remarks like "Gerben  
installs it wrongly"
2. The check for the specific X dynamic library is good because the  
gs binary is linked against that library and will fail to run without  
it. Any other X11 on another location would not work.

For the geeks:

$ otool -L `which gs`
         /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.6.dylib (compatibility version 6.0.0,  
current version 6.0.0)
         /usr/X11R6/lib/libSM.6.dylib (compatibility version 6.0.0,  
current version 6.0.0)
         /usr/X11R6/lib/libICE.6.dylib (compatibility version 6.3.0,  
current version 6.3.0)
         /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.6.dylib (compatibility version 6.4.0,  
current version 6.4.0)
         /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.6.dylib (compatibility version 6.2.0,  
current version 6.2.0)
         /usr/lib/libz.1.1.3.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0,  
current version 1.1.3)
         /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0,
