I don't see anything basically wrong in the locations you chose,  
except that you should never touch /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf- 
dist/. Install in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local (system-wide  
installation) or ~/Library/texmf (user-specific installation).

The only explanation I can see for your problem is that you didn't run  
"sudo mktexlsr" or "sudo texhash" (mktexlsr is texhash's new name)  
after putting the files in place.

What I just tried:

- Put igo.sty in ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/igo. Don't install  
repeat.tex, there's a newer version 0.93a in TeXLive already at /usr/ 
modified by its original author Victor Eijkhout, while the repeat.tex  
provided with igo is an older unofficial version modified by the  
author of igo (Étienne Dupuis).

- Put all *.mf files in ~/Library/texmf/fonts/source/public/igo.

- Put doc files in ~/Library/texmf/doc/fonts/igo, namely:


- Then run your example after adding missing \begin{document} and  
\end{document}, and a missing { in the second \white command.

Things work without any problem afterwards. So I really think that's a  
missing "sudo mktexlsr" in your case (given you installed inside /usr/ 
local/texlive, which needs running mktexlsr afterwards for kpsewhich  
to know that pieces after been added, moved or removed).
