Normally you just need to move the old files from gwTeX to the  
appropriate places for TeXLive:

- afm files (if any) inside /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/afm/ 

- map file(s) inside /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/map/dvips/ 

- tfm files inside /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/tfm/adobe/ 

- pfb or pfa files inside /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/type1/ 

- vf files inside /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/vf/adobe/garamond

- fd and sty files inside /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex/ 

Then, assuming the map file has name garamond.map, run in Terminal:

	sudo mktexlsr
	sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map garamond.map

You may also, if you prefer, use a user-specific installation instead  
of the system-wide installation above. In that case:

- Replace /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local by ~/Library/texmf

- Omit "sudo mktexlsr"

- Replace "sudo -H updmap-sys [...]" by "updmap --enable Map
