In such circumstances, a useful tool is kpsewhich. You may try either
of (they are equivalent):
kpsewhich -show-path=.ttf | tr : '\n'
kpsewhich -show-path="truetype fonts" | tr : '\n'
See section 3.5.1 of /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf/doc/kpathsea/
Often I just look through the various texmf trees to hint at how
things are organized, but the above is much more reliable.
On my setup the output is something like:
BTW, I wonder what we are supposed to make of, in /usr/local/texlive/
% OSFONTDIR is to provide a convenient hook for allowing TeX to find
% fonts installed on the system (outside of TeX). An empty default
% value would add "//" to the search paths, so we give it a dummy value.
OSFONTDIR = /please/set/osfontdir/in/the/environment
I suspect this is what causes the last line of output.
Ideally setting either of:
OSFONTDIR = /Library/Fonts
OSFONTDIR = $HOME/Library/Fonts
would avoid having to copy the fonts to a texmf tree. But I suspect
this would be far too simple and probably wouldn't work for some
reason (absence of extension in the filename "Comic Sans MS",
presence of spaces, packaging in a Mac-specific format, whatever).
