[OS X TeX] Problem with the "mathdesign" package under TeXLive 2014

I'm encountering a problem I can't figure out when I try to use the "mathdesign" package with TeXLive 2014.  Here's the minimal source file I'm using:

> \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}
> \usepackage[activate]{microtype}
> \usepackage[garamond]{mathdesign}
> \begin{document}
> The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.
> \end{document}

When I invoke pdflatex on that file, I get the following error message:

> Running `LaTeX' on `test' with ``pdflatex  -interaction=nonstopmode "\input" test.tex''
> This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.15 (TeX Live 2014) (preloaded format=pdflatex)

(A number of other errors appear afterwards - I've only include the first one above.) I've installed all the necessary fonts using getnonfreefonts, and if I roll back to TeXLive 2012, the file compiles just fine.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I've been using the mathdesign package for years and have never encountered this problem before.

Many thanks,
