I was able to use TeXShop and HieroTex, following instructions found  
on http://www.filipvervloesem.be/hierotexosx/Site/ 
How_to_install_HieroTeX_on_Mac_OS_X.html (which you should have found  
easily with your favorite search engine) and the Hiero engine.

The list of .pk files you give should not be necessary to use  
HieroTex: they are supposed to be created on the fly using the  
source .mf files, if no type1 version of the font is installed. The  
HieroFonteA.600pk is created with HieroFonteA.mf, which sould be  
somewhere in fonts/source/hierotex/mf in your texmf.

However, if you installed the type1 version of the fonts (as  
explained on F. Vervloesem's page) you should not use pk fonts and  
all the pk files you cite will never be created.
