TeXLive & TeXShop with Tex+DVI

I've installed TeXLive 2007 and TeXShop, via MacPorts.

When I attempt to run TeXShop's "default script" for "Tex + DVI", I  
get a dialog with the message below.

/usr/texbin/pdflatex does not exist. Perhaps TeXLive was not installed  
or was removed during a system upgrade. If so, go to the TeXShop web  
site and follow the instructions to (re)install TeXLive. Another  
possibility is that a tool path is incorrectly configured in TeXShop  
preferences. This can happen if you are using the fink teTeX  

I changed the path to indicate /opt/local/bin, and then I get ...

### This is /opt/local/bin/simpdftex, Version $Revision: 2.18 $
### Skipping simpdftex  [dvi->pdf only]
### /opt/local/bin/dvips -R -Poutline  -o /tmp/altpdfsimpdftex. 
9268-1246672724/-n tex.ps tex
This is dvips(k) 5.96 Copyright 2005 Radical Eye Software (www.radicaleye.com 
/opt/local/bin/dvips: ! DVI file can't be opened.
### FAILED to generate /tmp/altpdfsimpdftex.9268-1246672724/-n tex.ps ()

I need psfrag for my document so pdftex will not work for me.

Any solution and/or suggestion would be appreciated.
