As far as I know Ghostview is not part of MacTeX. There's an i-Package  
for it, and it requires Xaw3d. From the Readme:

• Package requires an install of Xaw3d.

Normally i-Installer takes care of such dependencies, by requiring the  
user to install Xaw3d first. Not sure that the OP used i-Installer,
