From the leading /usr/local/teTeX/ I suspect you have an older teTeX
based TeX distribution. If that is true you should really update to
the latest TeX Live 2007 based distribution. You can get the
MacTeX-2007 distribution from <http://www.tug.org/mactex/> or, for
more choices, <http://www.tug.org/mactex/morepackages.html>.
If, in fact, you've already installed the MacTeX or the TeX Live based
gwTeX distribution you should have a System Preference pane called TeX
Distribution. That preference pane will tell you which, of possibly
multiple, distribution(s) is being used.
If you have a Fink or MacPorts distribution the path variable has been
set in a different way and there are more complications.
