On the mactex-support list we've had a couple of reports of problems  
with missing fonts (in particular ptmr7t when using the times package  
or the IEEEtrans document class) from folks that have installed  
BasicTeX which is based on the ”TeX Live basic scheme” with the  
addition of “LaTeX recommended packages",
"ConTeXt format", "MetaPost (and Metafont) drawing", "PSTricks  
packages", and the "XeTeX macros.”

Can one use tlmgr to install a collection of fonts that would include  
the missing fonts and which collection would have these fonts? Maybe  
better, is there a way to use tlmgr find out which collection has  
these fonts so I don't have to bother this list with things like this?

Good Luck,
