[OS X TeX] Old Sites Need Updating.

While looking up the most recent versions of software that is to be  
included in MacTeXtras (everything in MacTeX that isn't part of the  
MacTeX installer package) I've noticed that many sites also have  
information about installation of a TeX distribution, etc.  
Unfortunately that information is often very out of date and can lead  
to terrible confusion.

One example is the installation of fonts and updating map files; many  
sites were never updated when the default behavior of updmap (and  
other system applications) changed with the addition of -sys versions  
(which behave the way the older versions behaved). I believe we've had  
lots of problems with font installation and format creation because of  

If you are running a site with such information please update it to  
agree with most recent practices.

Good Luck,
