On a Mac G4, with system 10.3. Now, after other tests, I have 
uninstalled Pfaedit, Freetype and Tex, and put Fontforge to the trash. 
Then I have reinstalled, in this order, Freetype2, FontForge and TeX 
(options : full, 2004 stable) from Gerben's i-directory at TUG. Nothing 
appear asking me if I want the GUI version of the Latin Modern fonts.

What should I do ?
