[OS X TeX] One question about reinstalling fonts

Sorry I have asked too many questions in one post.
I shall be simpler and more specific in this one.
Using Linotype Times Ten fonts, and following the Font Installation
Guide by Philip Lehman I have made Times Ten fonts for LaTeX (family
Everything works on the mac where the making of fonts, and the first
installation, were done. In order to transfer the fonts in one move
on my other mac, I had the idea of transferring all the texmf.local
For some reason I cannot understand, things don't go well on the
other mac. I get a "perfectly valid PDF file with the right amount of
blank space for every glyph --- but I do not see a single glyph when
looking at the PDF preview" [from the Font Installation guide, p. 19,
only replacing DVI by PDF].
According to the log file, TeX looks for files as lttrj8r :
(file lttrj8r): Font lttrj8r at 391 not found
All the files named lttrj8r, lttrij8r, lttrc8r,... do not exist, but
the corresponding 8a files do exist, and the ltt.map file contains
many lines as this one :
lttrj8r TimesTen-RomanOsF <8r.enc <lttrj8a.pfb " TeXBase1Encoding
The llt.map file is correctly referenced in dvips/config/config.ps
and so on (files have simply be copied from a location where
everything works well). To be sure I have run sudo texhash, sudo -H
updmap.sys and sudo updmap --enable Map ltt.map. I have also
reinstalled teTeX (expert installation), asking to check the
mappings, and I could see that the ltt.map box was checked.
Has somebody an idea of where the problem lies?
P.S. All the fourier settings were transferred in the same move, and
everything works perfectly for fourier. To be sure that there were no
ownership problems, I have made all the teTeX directory readable and
writable by anyone.
