[OS X TeX] TeXShop question

Hi all,

I am working on a project in which I need to use devanagari script (for 
Sanskrit text).  I want to use the Velthuis package found here:


This package is not part of teTeX, which I have installed to use 
TeXShop.  My problem is this:  How do I install this package in 

I am using TeXShop Version 1 (v1.43) and I am running OS X 3.9.

In the help files to TeXShop, under "Adding Personal Sty and Macro 
Files to teTeX," I found the following:

"It is possible to make these files visible to all teTeX projects, 
whether typeset from TeXShop or from the Terminal. To do so, create a 
subfolder of the Library folder in your home directory named texmf. 
Create subfolders named tex and bibtex. Within the tex folder, create a 
subfolder named latex. Store your personal files in these folders.

"Tex will find any file in ~/Library/texmf/tex or a subfolder of this 
directory. Latex will find any file in ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex or a 
subfolder of this directory, and bibtex and makeindex will find any 
file in ~/Library/texmf/bibtex and ~/Library/texmf/makeindex 
respectively, or a subfolder. It is not necessary to run texhash after 
adding files to these folders."

This works for .sty files.  However, I cannot figure out where to put 
the rest of the files (.tfm files and so on).  I tried a few things, 
but nothing worked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
