/usr is unavailable, but /usr/local is available as before without change. 
So, in particular, TeX is still installed in /usrlocal/texlive.

Prior to installing El Capitan, should I be moving my fonts somewhere else, for example, into /Library/TeX? If so, and I move them, then will I have to run a script to remap these fonts?
