[OS X TeX] Need help reinstalling Lucida fonts

Hi all,

I had a disk crash several months ago, and I realized I never 
reinstalled the Lucida fonts. I had them working with TeX before, but I 
was using straight teTeX that I installed myself. Now I'm trying to 
make them work with gwTeX, and I need some help.

What I've done so far is copy the pfb and pfa files to 
.../texmf.local/fonts/type1/lucida. I then ran texhash and updmap. Here 
is my test TeX file:




Testing: final, ``fitting'', difficult


The lucidbry package is found okay, but I'm getting missing font errors:

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

(file hlhr8
y): Font hlhr8y at 618 not found
Output written on Lucida.pdf (1 page, 995 bytes).
Transcript written on Lucida.log.

Of course it can't find the files, because my files have names like 
lbc.pfb, lbmd.pfb, etc, not hlhr8y.pfb. I think that this is a naming 
scheme problem (as mentioned at 
http://www.math.upenn.edu/tex_docs/latex/psnfssx/lucidabr.txt), but I 
don't know how to fix it. I think I want to  use the Karl Berry naming 
scheme, not the y&y scheme. How do I tell gwTeX to do this?

In looking through the output of updmap, I didn't see anything that was 
obviously related to lucida, i.e. no lucida.map. Do I have to copy a 
lucida.map from my old distribution.

Right now I'm working with pdftex, but I'd like to have this work with 
dvips+gs as well.

Thanks for any help.
