By installing MacTeX.

To get your PATH for X11 fixed, get the system's xinitrc template  
file (probably /private/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc) and copy it your home  
directory as .xinitrc:

	cp /private/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ~/.xinitrc

Then edit this personal copy before the line

	# start some nice programs

which hopefully still exists and add these two lines:

	PATH=/usr/local/gwTeX/bin/`uname -p`-apple-darwin-current:$PATH
	export PATH

Save the addition. When you now launch X11 it will have a modified  
search path for executables and latex will be found.
