Of course you are more than right and as a matter of fact I exactly
tried to do this in the past :-( I think I now remember what I did...
Someone posted a link to
in some newsgroup I guess when there was a big discussion going on about
securing Tiger, etc. and I thought that I should read it and see what
might be needful for me. On page 22, section 4.5 file system it is
stated that the default umask should change from 022 to 027 for
preventing newly created files from having read permissions for all users...
D'oh, once again! I only tried to follow what I thought was a good advice...
After setting this back to the default value, ghostscript installs and
I am not sure if this a complete proof and the only thing that was wrong
and if gwTeX will not be installed without a problem but I will give it
a try and report later what I've come to.
Thanks for your help, also to Gerben!
