My stupid error with the wrong map name. Now fixed---please download again.

The program does run sudo mktexlsr, which may ask for your password.

You may make changes by pressing 'other updmapsettings' on the 'updmap diffs' tab." I now have all four of the check boxes checked. The one that was set to false was "dvipsDownloadBase35 …"

By default, TeXLive 2011 sets dvipsDownloadBase35 to false, which can lead to problems if you process with latex+dvips+ps2pdf. The problem is that gs has at least one flawed font, Zapf Chancery, (it is sized nearly 20% too small by comparison with the version in TeXLive) and the flawed version is what you get with dvipsDownloadBase35 set to false. Setting it to true bypasses the issue.
