Compared to the steps described in the INSTALL file:

  1. Unchanged:
Create a directory ~/Library/texmf/fonts/type1/public/cm-super/ and put 
all pfb/*.pfb files there.

2. Unnecessary.

3. Changed:
Create a directory ~/Library/texmf/dvips/config/ and put all dvips/*.map 
and dvips/*.enc files there.

4. Changed:

a) Copy config.ps from /Library/teTeX/share/texmf/dvips/config/ to 
~/Library/texmf/dvips/config/ and add the lines:

p +cm-super-t1.map
p +cm-super-ts1.map
p +cm-super-t2a.map
p +cm-super-t2b.map
p +cm-super-t2c.map
p +cm-super-x2.map

b) Create a directory ~/Library/texmf/pdftex/config/, copy pdftex.cfg 
>from /Library/teTeX/share/texmf/pdftex/config/ there and add the lines:

map +cm-super-t1.map
map +cm-super-ts1.map
map +cm-super-t2a.map
map +cm-super-t2b.map
map +cm-super-t2c.map
map +cm-super-x2.map

5. Seems unnecessary (but apparently harmless).

Some remarks:

- I did not manage to run updmap, that's why I modified config.ps and 
pdftex.cfg by hand, but the procedure is far from optimal since the 
modifications must be reiterated for every new release of teTeX in case 
these files were changed in the release.

- I did not manage, either, to have config.ps and pdftex.cfg refer to 
*.map files located in another directory cm-super, as they should be, 
that's why I put those files in the same directory as config.ps. (I must 
confess I did not bother learning the proper syntax for the files 
config.ps and pdftex.cfg, after the obvious p +../cm-super/cm-super-
t1.map etc. turned out not to work.)

- I also downloaded all *.tfm files from the EC directory on CTAN, and 
put them in new directories ~/Library/texmf/fonts/tfm/jknappen/ec/ and 
~/Library/texmf/fonts/tfm/jknappen/tc/. However that's unnnecessary now, 
since Gerben has released a TeXShop generating *.tfm files automatically 
(and *.mf, and *.600pk) in the hidden /var/tmp/texfonts/ directory. 
After the release I even uninstalled cm-super and attempted using the 
original ec fonts only, but the result with them (PK fonts) was so ugly 
on my screen that I reinstalled cm-super quickly. I hadn't realised I 
had got so much used to PS fonts.

Hope this works for you too,
