This is what I did to produce Mac fonts. It assumes a gwtex 
installation and pfadit (both from i-Installer).

mkdir utopia
cd utopia
cp /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/fonts/type1/adobe/utopia/*
cp /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/fonts//adobe/utopia/*

then make a text file with the following

Open("putr8a.pfb", 1)
Open("putb8a.pfb", 1)
Open("putri8a.pfb", 1)
Open("putbi8a.pfb", 1)

save this as u.pe

then type

pfaedit -script u.pe

then you should have some fonts in your directory



cp *.dfont ~/Library/Fonts

and it should work.

I did this in on my machine running OS 10.2.8 and it worked fine. I was 
able to use the fonts in TextEdit and in Keynote.

HOWEVER. I also did it on my machine running OS 10.3.3 and the fonts 
worked in TextEdit but caused Keynote to crash. I am not a font expert 
so don't know why. Perhaps some of the font gurus here can help.
