On the 10.6 system, I have run into a problem which looks like a config problem of some sort, with 'epstopdf' failing. The same test works on 10.5 (identical .tex files).

Hmmm... One more thing. Do you have an epstopdf-sys.cfg or epstopdf.cfg file in your personal texmf tree (starting in ~/Library/texmf/ where ~ is your HOME folder)? If so, what is its contents? If it's an epstopdf-sys.cfg file there please rename it to epstopdf.cfg.
