 From what I could understand of the Log, the following seems most relevant:

    LaTeX Font Info: Redeclaring font encoding OML on input line 567.
    LaTeX Font Info: Redeclaring font encoding OMS on input line 568.

    With the psnfss package /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/doc/latex/
    psnfss/psnfss2e.pdf, you are able to use the Times fonts (slightly
    different from Times New Roman, but that won't really matter for
    most people). Try putting in your list of packages:

    This should change the typeface of your TeX-generated text to match

Not knowing what I am doing, I certainly don't want to do that.

    If you want to do the opposite--keep the body text as it is, and
    change the typeface in the Intaglio graphics to match it better--you
    could try using Latin Modern in Intaglio. The LM fonts aren't
    provided with OS X, but I believe i-Installer will provide them if
    you ask it nicely... others here can give more precise instructions,
    I'm sure.

Again, I am too ignorant to ask nicely so I will just try changing Times 
New Roman in the Intaglio files to Times and stay with the best match of 
the two.

Well, thanks to everybody and, once again, I have been reminded that "le 
mieux est l'ennemi du bien"—if /not/ in the accepted sense of the aphorism.

Very grateful regards to all.
