[OS X TeX] missing ligatures using AGaramon

Hi all,
I tried (again) to install AGaramond since I have the expert font, but 
I'm running into a hitch. I have not even yet tried to install/use the 
full set, but just the ones that are covered by the CTAN xadobe package 
(thinking the .tfm would be tuned better than what I could achieve with 
Well, my .tfm, .vf and .pfb are in place, the .map inputed using 
updmap, so things should be ok.
They're not: the ff, ffl and other ligatures are not showing up, either 
if I use pdf or ps.
I get the following error message:
This is dvips(k) 5.90a Copyright 2002 Radical Eye Software 
' TeX output 2002.10.18:2328' -> /tmp/altpdflatex.1704/testgara.ps

Warning: module writet1 of dvips (file padri8x.pfb): glyph `Z' undefined
Warning: module writet1 of dvips (file padr8x.pfb): glyph `V' undefined.

Is that because my pfb file is bad, or it is badly (re?)encoded? What 
would be the cause of that error? Of course, what makes me think it's a 
encoding problem is the V Y Z, since it's ffl etc. it's actually 
coughing on. I'm a bit wary of the pfb, since I used Fontographer to 
produce them from the mac postscript version I have of the fonts, not 
knowing how to use LWFN (with the info in the resource fork, if I'm not 
mistaken) with TeX.

Otherwise I'd also be grateful if someone could share their pad.map if 
complete (ie with the OsF fonts et al.), as I'm not positive as to how 
I' supposed to write it. Wold that be correct?
