Something I forgot: the advantage of this procedure is that you don't  
need to have two copies of the Latin Modern fonts, one (in /usr/local/ 
texlive/2007/texmf-dist/fonts/opentype/) visible to TeX and the other  
(in /Library/Fonts) visible to GUI applications. By using Font Book,  
you make the fonts in the texmf trees directly visible to GUI  

I tried using symlinks instead (creating a symlink to /usr/local/ 
texlive/2007/texmf-dist/fonts/opentype/public/lm inside /Library/ 
Fonts), but that didn't work.
