[OS X TeX] Installation of GUI Latin Modern fonts

I've been installing TeX earlier today on the brand new PowerBook of a 
Linux -> Mac convert I just made. At the end of the process, after GS, 
FontForge and all the recommended i-Packages on TeXShop's page, I 
installed the TeX i-Package in Expert mode and TL2005 setup. At the end 
of the install:

- Though FontForge was there and was seen, no conversion of Latin 
Modern fonts to GUI form took place. Here's the relevant subprocess 

> ### tex.configure: Latin Modern fonts have been installed but not yet 
> configured.
> ### tex.configure: Preparing TeX for Latin Modern configuration...
> ### tex.configure: Latin Modern fonts have been installed but not yet 
> converted for GUI use.
> ### tex.configure: FontForge found.
> ### tex.configure: Setting ownership of TeX installation in 
> /usr/local/teTeX to root ().

- Command-line activation took place, as I did verify in /etc/csh.login 
etc., though I don't remember having seen any dialog informing me that 
this would take place (as with the GS i-Package, for example).

I remember the issue of Latin Modern font conversion has been brought 
up already a couple of weeks ago, but I thought the issue had been 
solved in the meantime. The PowerBook on which the install took place 
was switched on for the first time about 8 hours ago.
