My OS X 10.9.5 system has Ghostscript installed also via MacPorts (in /opt/local/bin), and the Terminal command "which gs" shows that MacPorts version, which unfortunately is only at version 9.10.

Does this matter to MacTeX? That is, will MacTeX automatically look in /usr/local/bin? Or, instead, will it use whatever instance of gs my "which gs" shows?
