[Mac OS X TeX] mathtime

can anyone help me with the use of  mathtime fonts in TeXShop (1.13) + 
teTeX (under OS X.1.1)? I tried to install the mathtime fonts in the 
same manner as I did (succesfully) install the Lucida Bright fonts, 
i.e., I created the pfb-fonts "mtsy.pfb", "mtex.pfb" and "rmtmi.pfb" 
>from the type1-fonts using the t1utils included in CMacTeX and put them 
into the texmf-folder in my personal library-folder (path: 
ireich/library/texmf/fonts/type1/yandy/MathTime). However, when 
pdftex-ing, only parts of the fonts appear as should be, namely the 
Times text font greek letters etc., but not mathematical symbols like 
\forall, \langle, \in etc. Maybe the follwing warning message -- 
concerning "wolfram.map" -- is a hint to the solution:

(/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/tex/latex/psnfss/ts1ptm.fd) [1
Non-PDF special 
Warning: /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/pdflatex 
(file wolfr
am.map): cannot open font map file
] (/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/tex/latex/psnfss/ot1pcr.fd) [2] [3]
(/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/tex/latex/psnfss/ot1phv.fd) [4] [5]

Unfortunately, I know almost nothing about fonts and, thus, this message 
isn't very helpful  to ME.

To my surprise the situation is even worse when I use the 
TeX+Ghostscript Route; this time not even the Times text font appears 
correctly on the screen.

I suppose that I simply didn't correctly install the fonts and thus 
teTeX is simply not able to make any use of them, but I've got no idea 
how to deal with that problem.

Thanks for your help,
