In TeXLive (full) everything's preinstalled for Adobe Euro (TFM  
files, zpeu.map, packages europs.sty, eurosans.sty -- my favorite --,  
Rowland's eurofont.sty, plain TeX sample eurosample.tex), except the  
font themselves (AFM and PFB files).

Now, if you've installed TeXLive (MacTeX Scheme), then that's another  

I can see the mess associated with the coexistence of several TeX  
distributions (TeXLive-2007, TeXLiveMTS-2007, gwTeX, teTeX) coming,  
as anticipated!

That said, the eurosym fonts have now been converted to PostScript  
format and are included in this form in both TeXLive and gwTeX. Thus  
it should be possible to avoid the Adobe Euro fonts if needed. I  
haven't tried.
