I have installed Leopard with "Archive and Install" and my folders  
TeXShop and texmf in my Library were preserved; Image-Magick,  
freetype, png, tiff and jpeg libraries were installed from sources  
without any problem but you can install all this stuff with the MacTeX  
package from Richard Koch.
I succeeded to compile Ghostscript 8.60 from sources but it was very  
tricky; i-installer from Gerben Wierda is still working for that.
I often use the Tikz package and must have Gnuplot installed.  
Compiling Gnuplot 4.2.2 from sources (./configure, make) doesn't work  
as usual. I found the solution on this page http://maths.groups.vox.com/library/post/6a00b8ea067566dece00cd9711f5a84cd5.html

The MacTeX package installed, you don't need to change any path in  
TeXShop Preferences.

Happy Texing!
