Thanks Pete, but it still doesn't work.  In particular, the line above says fondu is available, so where is the problem.  In any case, I tried to reinstall fondu (which already existed) and I got the same message "Unarchive Stage Failed".  I also got the same report for fontconfig

Checking (required) dependency set 0 (all should be available). Reason: Fontconfig is linked dynamically against Freetype2 and will not work without those shared libraries installed
## Required  file /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.6.dylib is available. Good.
Dependency requirements fulfilled.
Starting trueinstall tasks
Prepare stage completed
Unarchive stage failed

The reason I'm trying to use GW Extras is to access the gtaMacfonts.  (Otherwise I use MacTex 2009.)  Is there any other way to download the package, without using i-Installer?

Thanks again,
