My instructions were detailed and difficult to follow at times  
because I tried to cover all possible cases. Most people have  
converted their fonts to PFB already, meaning you can throw away task  
1 (just put the PFBs to fonts/type1/lucida/), and won't care about  
using the fonts with plain TeX, meaning you can throw away tasks 4  
and 5.

Task 3 was an update of the pre-installed package lucidabr, most  
people won't care and be happy with the pre-installed version. Which  
leaves only step 4: download the metrics and map files from CTAN, put  
there at the appropriate places as indicated in the accompanying  
ReadMe, then use texhash and updmap to update the global map files.

It can even become simpler if you install in ~/Library/texmf instead  
of TexmfLocal; then you don't have to run texhash (= mktexlsr), and  
you can do all file displacements and directory creations in the  
Finder, without having to migrate to Terminal and use mv, mkdir and  

Still, of course an install script is nicer.
