This doesn't work for me, Claus. For example the following sequence produced nothing.
   1. I opened /usr/local/texlive/
   2. I clicked cmd-f
   3. In the resulting Searching "textlive" window I searched
       for "Contents" containing "Walter Schmidt"
   4. Nothing was found.

Be that as it may
starts off with
                 TeX support files for the
           Lucida Bright and Lucida New Math fonts
                      as of 2006-03-23
                                              Walter Schmidt

Is there something I'm missing here. How can I make your directions work?
