You won't be asked. When installing the TeX i-Package, i-Installer  
checks whether a folder /Library/Fonts/Latin Modern/ exists (not  
whether it contains actually any font). If not (and only in this  
case), then the conversion of the PostScript fonts to OpenType format  
and their installation inside /Library/Fonts/Latin Modern/ are done.

All this should become obsolete soon, when a new version of the OTF  
Latin Modern fonts is released, compatible with Mac OS. Then it will  
be included in regular gwTeX, with no need for conversion. At  
present, the version on CTAN at <http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/ 
fonts/lm/fonts/opentype/public/lm/> doesn't appear to be compatible  
with Mac OS.
