This means the .map files used by pdfTeX, dvips, dvipdfm and ps2pk  
haven't been updated to include information for the Adobe Euro fonts.

After putting all the pieces at the appropriate places, did you run  
updmap? Assuming you installed the fonts in texmf.pkgs (gwTeX) or  
texmf-local (TeX Live), that would mean typing in Terminal:

	sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map zpeu.map

If you installed the fonts in ~/Library/texmf, you should run instead:

	sudo updmap-sys --enable Map zpeu.map

Regarding the pieces to install, in TeX Live:

.afm files in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/afm/adobe/eurofont/
.pfb files in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/type1/adobe/eurofont/

and in gwTeX:

.afm files in /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.pkgs/fonts/afm/adobe/eurofont/
zpeu.map in /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.pkgs/fonts/map/dvips/eurofont/
.tfm files in /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.pkgs/fonts/tfm/adobe/eurofont/
.pfb files in /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.pkgs/fonts/type1/adobe/eurofont/
eurosans.sty in /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.pkgs/tex/latex/eurosans/

Hope this works,
