XeTeX <http://scripts.sil.org/xetex/> now allows transparent use of OS 
X fonts, without any conversion or installation being required. In case 
you're willing to try it, install also the packages xunicode.sty and 
fontspec.sty from the Related Packages page. On this page, there are 
also dedicated support files for fonts in the Adobe Type Classics 
library, though it was said that, with the support of optical sizes in 
the latest (0.94) version of XeTeX, these dedicated files are no longer 
necessary and fontspec.sty is enough.

Though being the person who initiated a tutorial on font installation 
for (La)TeX on OS X, I must say that with the advent of XeTeX I've 
mostly lost interest in these issues, and I've forgotten a lot thus I 
can't really help.
