It's a moot point for me since it all works now, but...this was a  
completely new installation.  You're right, I had previously  
installed TeXLiveMTS-2007 but I then completely erased the drive and  
reinstalled 10.4.8.  So it should have been all new.  Very strange  
that installing TeXLive-2007 before MacTeX_Additions would have  
caused this behavior...
