Trying to understand what you mean: did you do exactly the following:
- Put PFB files inside /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.local/fonts/type1/.
- Put TFM files inside /Libraryl/teTeX/share/texmf.local/fonts/tfm/.
- Put VF files inside /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.local/fonts/vf/.
- Put AFM files inside /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.local/fonts/afm/
(not necessary for standard LaTeX use, only for dvipdfm IIRC).
- Put MAP files inside /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.local/fonts/map/.
- Put plain TeX support files (generally with .tex extension), if
any, inside /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.local/tex/plain/.
- Put LaTeX support files (generally with .sty and .fd extension)
- Run in Terminal "sudo -H mktexlsr" (or "sudo -H texhash", which is
exactly the same).
- Run in Terminal, assuming a MAP file mtpro.map, for example, "sudo -
H updmap-sys --enable Map mtpro.map".
Things should work afterwards. Don't ever edit updmap.cfg (any of
In case you have run updmap instead of updmap-sys previously, this
has probably created files psfonts.map etc. inside ~/Library/texmf/
fonts/map/, and .fmt files together with updmap.cfg inside ~/Library/
texmf/web2c/: these shouldn't exist, delete them.

Might be you are having aliases, which the Mac OS X Finder
understands but the Unix TeX back-end doesn't understand, instead of
symlinks (aka symbolic links) which both the Finder and the Unix TeX
Symlinks can't (AFAIK) be created directly by the Finder, they are
created in Terminal by using "ln -s". Here are for example what an
alias and a symlink look like using "ls -l" in Terminal:
Portable-de-Bruno:~/Desktop brunovoisin$ ln -s "Wanadoo 2006-03.pdf"
Portable-de-Bruno:~/Desktop brunovoisin$ ls -l
-rw-r--r-- 1 brunovoi wheel 15640 Apr 25 08:27 Wanadoo
-rw-r--r-- 1 brunovoi staff 0 Apr 27 01:34 Wanadoo alias.pdf
lrwxr-xr-x 1 brunovoi staff 19 Apr 27 01:35 Wanadoo
symlink.pdf -> Wanadoo 2006-03.pdf
Another possible explanation is a permission problem. Did you try to
repair permissions in Disk Utility?
Hope this helps,
