And Peter Dyballa has already answered your question. I haven't  
thought of such a simple thing as to copy the contents of  
psfonts.mkr2 into a makor.map!

As he has instructed you to put your new makor.map into


so you should with the rest of your makor2 distribution; for example,  
makor2.sty, in ctan.org/tex-archive/languages/hebrew/makor/tex/latex/ 

should be put in


etc. And remember to update the TeX database with `` sudo texhash '',  
as Dyballa said, after any addition to /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local.
