Thanks for this tip, Adam; that's worth keeping in mind.

Is there any reason to try installing .pfb's in Library/Fonts folders? 
AFAIK, I don't think the OS can actually load them directly, can it? At 
least it didn't seem to be able to when I tried some time back, and 
that's why I started converting the CM and other .pfb's to .otf's for 
XeTeX to use.
