Michael and Peter,
Thank you very much for hanging in there with my difficulty. If I can get this corrected, then students at our college can purchase a printed versions our free Prealgebra Textbook:
For about $28 instead of the $40 something dollars charged by our bookstore.
david-arnolds-macbook-pro-2:temp darnold$ kpsewhich psfonts.map
So a personal updmap.cfg doesn't seem to be the problem.
There seem to be two updmap.cfg file:
In /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg I have:
# Valid settings are true / false:
In /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg I have:
# Valid settings are true / false:
I also have two psfonts_t1.map files.
In /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/updmap/psfonts_t1.map I have:
In /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf-var/fonts/map/dvips/updmap/psfonts_t1.map I have:
pzdr Dingbats <uzdr.pfb
I have made no further attempts at changes. I await your opinion.

>>> ZapfDingbats is in the LW35 collection, so your settings in updmap.cfg may prevent it being included in the ps. Assuming you are using a system-wide updmap.cfg, you could try
>>> sudo updmap-sys --setoption dvipsDownloadBase35=true
> If dvipsDownloadBase35 is set to false in updmap.cfg (the default, I believe), you get exactly the behavior you describe because there is an entry in the system psfonts_t1.map that reads

> The only explanation I can see for why this step failed in your case is that you are not using a system-wide updmap.cfg, but have a personal version that prevents LaTeX from seeing the system-wide version. If the command
