Here I have forgotten another component: LaTeX's .fd (font  
definition) files. I always tend to think they go on par with .sty  
files, but they often don't and have instead to be supplied  
separately. Which is the case here.

Hence, regarding the various components of CTAN's lucida directory:

- doc files: lucida/doc/fonts/lucida    -> ~/Library/texmf/doc/fonts/ 

- AFM files: lucida/fonts/afm/bh/lucida -> ~/Library/texmf/fonts/afm/ 

- MAP file:  lucida/fonts/map/dvips     -> ~/Library/texmf/fonts/map/ 

- TFM files: lucida/fonts/tfm/bh/lucida -> ~/Library/texmf/fonts/tfm/ 

- VF files:  lucida/fonts/vf/bh/lucida  -> ~/Library/texmf/fonts/vf/ 

- FD files:  lucida/tex/latex/lucida    -> ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/ 

This time I hope I've not forgotten something else!
