Do you mean that MiKTeX had built a custom format file for you?
The log shows that the file in question is loaded. And that you're
not really using MacTeX which is installed in /usr/local/texlive/
<some year>, but Fink's teTeX (version 2 or 3).
By correcting the setup of the environment variable PATH you can
solve your problem. It probably comes from an instruction like
in ~/.profile for Bourne shell (sh) or bash users or
for (t)csh users in ~/.(t)cshrc. This makes Fink programmes come
first to be chosen for execution. A simple cure would be to remove
Fink's teTeX – within a few minutes it could be re-installed from its
package files ...
UNIX is user friendly, it's just picky about who its friends are.
