tfms of the ec fonts are generated automatically; the first time around
LaTeX will cry foul, the tfms will be generated, and the second time
around they will be there. teTeX also has scripts allcm / allce for
generating tfms. I haven't tried this under osx, though.

The Metafont sources are under fonts/sources/jknappen. They are completely
parameterized, and metafont parameter files for specific sizes are also
generated on the fly. All these generated mf's and tfm's would wind up in
the same directory hierarchy as the pk bitmaps.
