I've figured out how to fix _this_ error: in ~/Library/texmf I have file 
web2c/updmap.cfg. I just added to its end:

   Map wolfram.map #localtexmf/dvips/config/wolfram.map
   Map pdfwolfram.map #localtexmf/pdftex/config/pdfwolfram.map

Now the .map files are found. But there's another problem. When I try to 
LaTeX the following file in TeXShop...

   \item This should be a Gothic B: $\goB$
   \item This should be a Gothic A: $\goA$
   \item Mathematica Logo: \MathLogo

.. I get a fatal error:

kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 --dpi 600 
gsftopk: fatal: map file `psfonts.map
' not found.
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for Mathematica5.
mktexpk: perhaps Mathematica5 is missing from the map file.
kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.
!pdfTeX error: /usr/texbin/pdflatex (file Mathematica5): Font 
Mathematica5 at 6
00 not found
  ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

(Documents not using the Mathematica fonts still process OK, including 
those using Lucida Bright math fonts and those using MathTime Pro 2 fonts.)
