Assuming you have MacTeX-2011 installed...

Installing a new major OS version (not minor version updates) often messes up paths and the symbolic link /usr/texbin. I suggest going to <http://www.tug.org/mactex/2011/prefpane.html> and downloading and running FixMacTeX2011.pkg. That should fix up those links, etc.

Good Luck,
