[OS X TeX] gtamacfonts & Leopard

Apart from the TeX side (mapping and such), the Apple fonts in / 
Library/Fonts etc. need to be converted to a format that TeX can use,  
using fondu. In the old gwTeX i-Package, this is done during  
configuration. Copying the results in the i-Package breaks the  
copyright of the fonts, hence the 'reproduction part'. The converted  
fonts end up in /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.gwtex/fonts/truetype/gtamacfonts

As I do use GTAmacfonts myself, I do intend to either produce a gwTeX  
i-Package based on TL 2008 (strictly following TL directory structure  
such that you can mix and match) or produce a separate GTAmacfonts i- 
Package to be installed on top of a MacTeX/TL installation.
