Get the archive and unzip it for example somewhere in /tmp. Change  
directory (cd, pushd) on the command line into that directory. With  
'ls -l' you might see then:

   -rw-rw-r--   1 ftpmaint ctan         1.6k Aug  8  2005 README
   drwxrwsr-x   7 ftpmaint ctan         4.0k Aug  8  2005 fonts
   drwxrwsr-x   3 ftpmaint ctan         4.0k Aug  8  2005 tex

The files in the fonts and tex directories follow TDS, the TeX  
Directory Structure. So its very easy to use tar to put the files and  
the directory structure into the local TeXMF tree:

	sudo tar -cf - fonts tex | ( pushd /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local ;  
sudo tar --no-same-owner -xf - )

The following step is a bit uncertain from my point of view since I  
don't the exact file names of the Frutiger TTF files. First we need a  
directory in which to install them:

	sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/truetype/linotype/ 

Let's assume that your Frutiger TTF files are in /Library/Fonts:

	pushd /Library/Fonts

(otherwise change directory to "~/Library/Fonts"). Instead of copying,  
which wastes disk place, create hard-links (you need to correct the  
names of the Frutiger TTF files):

	sudo ln "Frutiger Linotype.ttf" /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/ 
	sudo ln "Frutiger Linotype Italic.ttf" /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/ 
	sudo ln "Frutiger Linotype Bold.ttf" /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/ 
	sudo ln "Frutiger Linotype Bold Italic.ttf" /usr/local/texlive/texmf- 

(The TeX file names are a bit uncommon.) Now update the "hash" file of  
your local TeXMF tree:

	sudo texhash /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local

Update the MAP files with the frutiger MAP file fragment:

	sudo updmap-sys --enable Map frutiger.map

Now go to pdfLaTeX work with \usepackage{frutiger}!
