[OS X TeX] Courier font changes?

     I use the Courier font for \texttt{} in a variety of documents,  
loaded along with Utopia and Fourier in my document preambles via  
\usepackage{fourier,courier}.  Since upgrading my desktop to OS X  
10.4.2 and gwTeX to the most recent version (my prior installation  
was probably about 16-24 months old), text in the Courier font has a  
much finer "weight" in documents I compile now relative to the same  
documents compiled under the previous system (10.3.9 with an earlier  
gwTeX install).  I'm not sure if "weight" is the correct  
terminology;  the Courier font in the new documents is very fine,  
thin and wispy -- the older documents almost appear to have the  
Courier font set in bold (they do not) by comparison.  Is there  
anyway to get back the old font or change the weight?

     Looking through my installed fonts in Font Book, it looks like  
it could be that "Courier New" (a Microsoft font?) is now being  
placed into the PDFs instead of Apple's Courier.  Is there some  
configuration file I could modify to change this behavior?  If so, I  
suspect I would need fairly detailed instructions;  fonts in LaTeX  
make me break out into a cold sweat.  ;)  Thanks in advance!
