I want to be able to use Mathematica fonts with LaTex. I find two 
seemingly different method for doing this:

(1) robert's post 

(2) Jens-Peer Kuska's instructions in mysymdoc.pdf, a file in the 
Mathematica 8's SystemFiles/IncludeFiles/TeX/texmf/doc folder.

Method (1) explicitly assumes one is using linux, although at


robert indicates the instructions should work for OS X.

Method (2) uses files that are distributed with Mathematica for OS X, 
although Kuska is referring to either MikTeX on Windows or teTeX on Unix.

Which works with TeXLive 2011 under OS X?

Also, method (1) says to edit the two .map files so as to rename font 
names xxxxx.pfb to .pfa (presumably as the Wolfram-supplied Type 1 font 
files use .pfa for their extensions.

Is there any reason to edit the .map files like that instead of changing 
the extensions of the font files themselves to .pfb?
