I'm using the binary distribution from http://www.tug.org/mactex/
(MacTeX.pkg, 3.2GB) and it works fine. It also includes gs (ghostscript)
and ps2pdf. Of course X11 is NOT required.

Can you create PDF from a simple LaTeX source by pdflatex command?

I'm using /usr/bin/groff in place of roff2ps and it seems to work.
Create a script like

groff -T ps "$@"

name it roff2ps, and put it somewhere in your PATH.
