Sorry I didn't quiet understand that.  Given this;

$ mtxrun --script fonts --list --pattern=warnock 
warnockpro-bold WarnockPro-Bold WarnockPro-Bold.otf

which of the following are correct;

1. \definefontsynonym [WarnockPro-Regular] [name:warnockpro-bold] 
2. \definefontsynonym [WarnockPro-Regular] [name:WarnockPro-Bold]
3. \definefontsynonym [WarnockPro-Regular] [file:WarnockPro-Bold.otf]
4. \definefontsynonym [WarnockPro-Regular] [file:WarnockPro-Bold]

I'm using cont-tmf.zip uploaded on 2008-08-05 18:50
(http://www.pragma-ade.nl/download-1.htm) extracted to ~/texmf.  I need this
because I use TeXLive 2007.

Hans, why does it compile fine when I copy the fonts over to the working
directory?  There must be something wrong with the OSFONTDIR variable.  BTW, I
think you should switch over to linux and make life easier for us :)
