I just installed Ghostscript 8.64 on a G4 machine running system  
10.5.5. It installed without problems.

Could you find the Console program in /Applications/Utilities? Open  
this console, and select "All Messages" in the left hand panel. Then  
install Ghostscript again (use Custom Install to avoid the rest of the  
install packages.) You should see messages from the installer,  
including the message "run postflight script for Ghostscript 8.64"  
After that, you'll see a few messages labeled postflight[144] or  
something like that. Are there messages there? What do they say?
