There are two routes to viewing a compiled LaTeX file:
1) Compile to DVI format and invoke a DVI viewer ("DVI" is Donald
Knuth's old "DeVice Independent" format).
2) Compile to PDF format and invoke a PDF viewer.
At this point in time the first is a "legacy" thing; most systems
today will not even have a DVI viewer. But gretl will expect that
you want to view DVI if your LaTeX engine is called "latex". If your
LaTeX engine is called "pdflatex" then gretl will assume you're
compiling to PDF format and will invoke a PDF viewer, which surely
ought to work.
So somehow the TeX-processor information you're supplying to gretl
is inconsistent or is otherwise defeating gretl's expectations.
So far as I can tell, the current "standard" TeX for OS X is MacTeX,
. I suspect that if you installed that
everything would work smoothly.
