That might be the cause of the problem. These lines rely on the  
presence of the MathTimes Plus fonts, which never got distributed by  
Blue Sky (then) Research -- as opposed to MathTimes 1.1. Moreover, the  
mathtime LaTeX package inside teTeX has also been created assuming the  
MathTimes Plus fonts are present. This is different from the situation  
in the lucidabr package for Lucida fonts, you don't have an [expert]  
option than can be set at run time, for telling whether or not the  
Expert fonts are present. Here for MathTime fonts you have to uncomment  
a line at the time the font definition .fd files in the LaTeX package  
are created, from the original .fdd file.

You can either purchase MathTimes Plus from Y&Y  
<http://www.yandy.com/mathtime.htm> (ask for PC/Windows format, these  
are .pfb files than can be used directly on OS X), or regenerate the  
mathtime package to adapt to the absence of MathTimes Plus. Get the  
mathtime directory from CTAN, for example  
 >, then open mathtime.ins and uncomment:


then LaTeX this file. It will generate the files:

Create a directory ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/mathtime/ and put these  
files inside. They will supersede the ones in  

This, together with not using the options  
[mtbold,subscriptcorrection,mtplusscr,mtpluscal], could solve your  

Hope this works,
