First off, many thanks to Gerben Wierda for all the work on those teTeX 
Just tried the last beta version ("teTeX-beta20011202.dmg") and it seems 
to work like the previous ones on my setup.

By the way, the putting the fink "source" statement in .login didn't

Now for the questions. I think they're specific to the MacOS X 
distribution but I could be wrong.

one in /usr/local/teTeX/, the one in 
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/web2c/, or the one in 

Which config file(s) should we modify when we add font map files? Is it 
a good idea to use updmap? Is there a more convenient way to add map

~/Library/texmf tree (dvips/config/config.ps and 
pdftex/config/pdftex.cfg). Is this a good method?
