Which font package are you trying to install: the original set of  
four TrueType fonts or the arev package on CTAN? If it's the latter,  
I'd suggest to use mpm.

Otherwise you have to find a so-called local TeXMF directory in which  
you could install. The CTAN package has directories to just move into  
the target area:

	sudo mkdir -p <path to local TeXMF directory>/fonts/afm/public
	sudo mv arev/fonts/afm/public/arev <path to local TeXMF directory>/ 

The same two-steps for tfm, vf, and type 1. The MAP file fragment can  
be handled this way:

	sudo mkdir -p <path to local TeXMF directory>/fonts/map/dvips
	sudo mv arev/fonts/map/dvips/arev <path to local TeXMF directory>/ 

The font encoding files can be treated this way:

	sudo mkdir -p <path to local TeXMF directory>/fonts/enc/dvips
	sudo mv arev/fonts/enc/dvips/arev <path to local TeXMF directory>/ 

The we have also the STY and FD files:

	sudo mkdir -p <path to local TeXMF directory>/tex/latex
	sudo mv arev/tex/latex/arev <path to local TeXMF directory>/tex/latex

Finally something has to be done with the documentation files:

	sudo mkdir -p <path to local TeXMF directory>/doc/fonts
	sudo mv arev/doc/fonts/arev <path to local TeXMF directory>/doc/fonts

Did I write finally? This was too early. You could install the source  
files also, in source/fonts for example, but the real final step is:

	sudo texhash



$ sumascii BILL GATES
   B   I   L   L   G   A   T   E   S
  66+ 73+ 76+ 76+ 71+ 65+ 84+ 69+ 83 = 663

  and add 3 because he's Bill Gates the third.
