pstopdf runs a ruby script, which should behave similarly to ps2pdf.  Both
use ghostscript for the real work.  Do you have multiple versions of ghostscript
installed?  I think some 3rd party apps put a ghostscript in /usr/local/...
If you get a .pdf file use the  Inspector in Preview.app to see which version
of ghostscript was used.
