Gcc takes the file epstopdf.c as a C source input file and compiles  
it. The option -o determines the name of the output file. The output  
file will be an executable by default (having the name a.out if no '- 
o <name>' is given) and it will reside in the same directory where  
the C source is. So finally you would need to move the output file to  
its destination directory:

	sudo mv epstopdf /usr/local/texlive/2007/bin/powerpc-darwin

(There are many more options gcc understands, approximately 1234, and  
you can control all phases of compilation and the final step of link  
editing with environment variables or arguments like -W 
[apl],<options>, where W[apl] means W and one of three letters, which  
stand for the target of the options, assembler, preprocessor, or  
linker. 'gcc -v --help' gives an overview and names the defaults.  
Don't forget to set the gcc version active: 'sudo gcc_select 4.0')

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
