Two possible mistakes: wrong place you installed in *and/or* sudo 
texhash forgotten.

An upgrade of your TeX i-Package to 2004 stable might bring the recent 
fontinst version (or 2005 devel).

Plain TeX is the right thing, no Ghostscript needed. Please try to 
invoke in Terminal 'sudo texhash' -- I'm sure this will cure the 
problem of not finding the fontinst files. In approximately 40 min

The day Microsoft makes something that doesn't suck is the day they 
start selling vacuum cleaners.
