I think there are instructions about installation of mtp2 on the PCTeX site.

I'd place all fonts and font related support pieces in the appropriate sub-directories of /usr/texlive/texmf-local/. You then need to run

sudo mktexlsr

so TeX can find the files (that isn't necessary if placed in ~/texmf) and then

sudo updmap-sys --enable Map=...

to make the fonts available. You need the `sudo' (and then have to enter your admin password) because TeX Live is installed with root ownership by the MacTeX installer.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck,
