Just to follow up on my saga (I was out of town for a few days), I  
decided that this was serious enough that I should do an archive and  
install of Leopard. So I did that, re-installed MacTeX 2007, ran the  
Leopard Fix, and then "updmap --enable Map lucida.map" and now my  
paths are working and I can use Lucida just fine. So something was  
apparently screwed up with my system, since I didn't need to change  
anything under my home folder to get things to work. Thanks for all  
the help.
