I wonder if the font change happened at some point in Tiger. When I
installed gwTeX on my new MacBook Pro under 10.4.10 it was missing the
ttf files. (Could that be because Fondu was burping?) This was
confirmed by a few others. I copied the ttf files over from my older
PowerBook G4 where gwTeX was installed quite a while ago.
