Am I asking for trouble if I simple copy the Resource folder from 8.71, or should I compile my own 9.02 from source and use the version it creates?

I think you'll discover that if you compile from source, you get what is in MacTeX-2011. There were
some Ghostscript changes between 8.71 and 9.02.

We made the Ghostscript 9.02 package long before we made the rest of MacTeX-2011, so it
has been tested for a long time. I'm not aware of problems.
