Thanks -- I REALLY didn't want to go through all of the steps to re- 
create the files for Adobe Garamond (and Warnock) again, so I just  
went the brute force way, copied all of the font stuff in /usr/local/ 
gwTeX/texmf.local/fonts/ into what seemed to be corresponding places  
in /usr/local/texlive/texmf.local/fonts/, ran texhash and updmap-sys -- 
enable Map for the two relevant maps, and now it works.  So I guess I  
shouldn't have wasted the electrons and people's time asking for  
help.  But thanks anyway.
