[OS X TeX] My ! has disappeared in Times

OK, I am going quietly crazy. None of the things that Bruno
suggested worked, and so I thought I would install a more modern
version of the MathTime fonts, the MathTime Pro collection I bought
about a year ago (including Supplement A and Supplement B) from
PCTeX, but never got around to installing.
So the first thing I have to do is fix my texmf.local. I take all
the files which PCTeX provides and copy them into the correct places
in my texmf.local. I patch web2c/updmap.cfg, run updmap, then look
at the log. None of the mtpro maps "took".
Hmmm. Why not? I use the terminal to go into /usr/local/teTeX/share/
texmf.local/fonts/type1, and an ls shows me that the mtpro folder I
had copied into it doesn't exist!
From the terminal I do an ln -s from the type1 directory to my
desktop. The alias appears, I double-click it: and there's the
I can see it from the Finder, but I can't see it in Terminal.
So I understand why teTeX punts to Metafont (which fails, since there
are no .mf files): when I ran updmap, it never saw the font files,
so it didn't use the map files. (As I saw when I read the log.) But
why not? Where'd they go?
Presumably I have some aliases which are pointing somewhere I don't
realize they're pointing, but---nothing SHOWS to be an alias.
Any ideas what gives? BTW, my Concrete fonts from Micropress work
fine. I used the same technique with them ???!!!
This is Mac OS X Server 10.4.6.
