I don't understand what the problem is here. You obviously have  
multiple installs of TeX; the older and newer teTeX version of gwTeX  
(both the ppc and i86 versions in the latter case) and a TeX Live  
based version. The other items are the man files for kpsewhich. Try  
doing `which kpsewhich' to find out which version is presently active.

Good Luck,
