Can I add... For XeTeX users...

You should copy the ``special'' graphics.sty and color.sty files that have
the xetex option defined from /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/tex/xetex/
(I think that is were the xetex i-package puts them) into
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/xetex/latex/ or
~/Library/texmf/xetex/latex/. Remember to run "sudo mktexlsr" if you do
things in texmf.local, as Gerben said in his message.

I've also put utf8accents.sty, fontenc.sty, etc., in
~/Library/texmf/xetex/latex/ and they are found by xelatex.

I'm really impressed with how relatively smoothly all of this has gone. And
it would have gone even smoother if I hadn't tried to anticipate what was
going to happen!!! The only place where the anticipation worked was putting
the zpeur.map file (for the Adobe Euro Font) in
~/Library/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/eurofont/ so it was found at the initial
updmap during the TeX i-package configuration stage.

Gerben you've thought about (almost?) everything!!!

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
