Are you sure you're using MacTeX on that computer? Do you have a TeX  
Distribution system preference pane? If so, is it set to be using the  
MacTeX distribution?

I assume you're only giving a relevant part of the output of that  
command. That is typical of the earlier teTeX distribution.

Good Luck,
