Only gwTeX installs them, not MacTeX.

For copyright issues, it's not possible to include copies of the OS X  
fonts involved (Baskerville, Didot, Georgia, Hoefler Text, Optima,  
Verdana, Gill Sans, Futura, Futura Condensed, Helvetica Neue, Lucida  
Grande, American Typewriter) in TeX itself in .ttf format (in /texmf/ 

Instead, the Fondu software, for which an i-Package exists, is used to  
convert the fonts to .ttf format at the time gwTeX is installed.
