Just in case: did you run exactly the following two commands, in  

sudo mktexlsr
sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map arev.map

If you didn't (i.e., if you used updmap instead of updmap-sys), then  
you should have (I think) generated map files inside


If so, then erase these files and run the above commands. For details  
on the why, see the section "I am having configuration problems (with  
the command line tools)" at <http://ii2.sourceforge.net/tex-index.html>.

If you did use texhash instead of mktexlsr, that isn't a problem, as  
the (deprecated) texhash has been made a symlink to mktexlsr.

If that doesn't solve your problem, could you tell exactly which  
files have been installed and where?

There is another possible cause to your problem: the provided  
arev.map contains lines of the form

favr8r ArevSans-Roman <8r.enc <ArevSans-Roman.pfb " TeXBase1Encoding  
ReEncodeFont "

I would have expected the correct syntax to be

favr8r ArevSans-Roman " TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <8r.enc  

I wonder whether this can matter. I looked at section 6.4 of /Library/ 
teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/doc/programs/dvips.pdf, it looks like that  
should be the case, but I'm not sure.
