I hate to pile on, but I'm also having serious font problems.  Sample 
document and console log are attached.  I uninstalled my old Gerben TeX 
install and reinstalled, once using expert mode so I could make sure 
utopia and fourier maps were enabled and then again using basic mode.  
Now I can't get anything to typeset right.  I have studiously avoided 
trying to understand the horrible kludge that is the LaTeX font system, 
but it looks like I'm about to be educated.  Sigh...

Here's the sample document:



Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Phasellus sed 
urna. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit.


And here's the console output:

This is pdfeTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.20a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.3)

Output written on sample.pdf (1 page, 1261 bytes).
Transcript written on sample.log.

Some observations:

The file pdftex.map does not appear in my /usr/loca/teTeX tree.

The above transcript is from running pdflatex from within BBEdit.  If I 
run it from a shell, then mktexpk is found and I actually get a pdf, 
but the fonts are in that wonderfully ugly bitmapped form that I 
sometimes see when downloading .ps files and converting them to pdf.
