See the minimal example from my first posting below that shows the  
problem with Hoefler, now complete with all the usepackage commands.

The other fonts work fine for me except HelveticaNeue.

The problem with this font is that on Leopard it does no longer exist  
in /Library/Fonts/ but in /Systen/Library/Fonts/ and is not found by  
Fondu. It works after I copied the font to /Library/Fonts/ (but the  
system reports a problem with the duplicate font then, so it is  
probably a good idea to remove it once Fondu has generated the font  

Another small problem: The script generates an empty /usr/local/gwTeX/ 
texmf.gwtex/fonts/truetype/gtamacfonts/helveticaneue/ folder which has  
to be removed before running it again, otherwise it seems to think  
that the font already exists.

I also get this warning each time I run my minimal example:

pdfTeX warning: pdflatex (file /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.gwtex/fonts/map/ 
pdftex/gtamacfonts/gtamacfonts.map): fontmap entry for `ts1- 
OptimaRegular' already exists, duplicates ignored

Gerben, thanks for the quick reaction!

Best regards,

Here's the minimal example:
