I have been updating via TLU all along, and the latest update was shortly before I started this thread.  I have not downloaded and installed any recent mactex tarballs.  With that, the 10.6 installation presented me with the failure that prompted all this, and I "fixed" the problem by switching to "Tex+DVI" on 10.6.

That should be ok. that's what I've done.

Could you provide a minimal but compilable sample file (and eps to include) that shows this behavior. Depending upon what you are doing there might be a problem with restricted shell escape which is one of the things I've been testing.

Let me know what you get when you run

kpsewhich epstopdf-sys.cfg


kpsewhich epstopdf.cfg

as well as let me know what you get when you run

cat /usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf-dist/tex/latex/latexconfig/epstopdf-sys.cfg

(that's one long path there) to see the contents of that file.

Good Luck,
