The naming shouldn't be important. Regarding the directory for the  
map files, the teTeX directory layout has changed and it should now  
be ~/Library/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/ifmath, but I don't think that  

What's missing is more probably running updmap at the end of the  

     sudo updmap --enable Map ifmath.map

(replace ifmath.map by the name of the map file).

Hope this helps,
