One thing that happened is that the "skeleton" I found was only  
partial, i.e., it lacked the following folders: /doc, /source, /fonts/ 
afm, and /fonts/map. I created these in the Finder, and put  
everything in place, but as a result all the folders that were  
created, either directly or as a result of putting the files (e.g.,  
fonts/tfm/bh/, etc.), have different owner and permissions, and  
cannot be accessed from a different user. For instance, this is the  
first level of texmf-local:

drwxr-xr-x    4 root    wheel   136 Jan 19 16:05 bibtex
drwx------    5 jmfont  wheel   170 Jan 19 13:41 doc
drwxr-xr-x    3 root    wheel   102 Jan 19 16:05 dvips
drwxr-xr-x    8 root    wheel   272 Jan 19 16:11 fonts
-rw-r--r--    1 root    wheel  6004 Jan 19 16:14 ls-R
drwxr-xr-x    3 root    wheel   102 Jan 19 16:05 metapost
drwx------    5 jmfont  wheel   170 Jan 19 13:41 source
drwxr-xr-x    4 root    wheel   136 Jan 19 16:05 tex
drwxr-xr-x    2 root    wheel    68 Jan 19 16:05 web2c

Is there an easy way to remedy this ? I suppose some unix command ...

Thanks! I will check later. At least from the original (installer)  
user it seems it worked...

Thanks for all the great work and advice!
