Just a shot in the dark here, but does the problem persist if you  
close Latexit, then go to the terminal and run:

open -a Latexit

and then try from this opened Latexit? This would make Latexit have  
the same path settings as the terminal, and if it makes a difference  
then we can perhaps start narrowing down the problem.
