Your path is not set correctly.  However, the i-installer should have 
properly set this for you.  You can try to set it yourself so you can 
run texhash to see if that fixes your font problem.  If you have bash 

export PATH

or if you have tcsh type:

setenv PATH /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current:$PATH

The problem is that whichever of the above commands works needs to be 
in either ~/.bashrc or ~/.tcshrc respectively to make it permanent, but 
you should never have to do this if everything was installed properly 
in the first place (the path is changed in the system initialization 
file not your personal initialization file).

The only thing that I can suggest is to do a reinstall (nothing needs 
to be cleaned up beforehand), but keep careful note of exactly what you 
do.  That way somebody on this list will be able to spot what is going 
wrong.  You are experiencing problems that should not occur...
