There is probably still some MAP file to add, probably named  
bera.map! Put it into ~/Library/texmf/fonts/map and invoke

	updmap --enable Map=bera

Vector based or scalable fonts need a MAP file to teach TeX this  
difference from METAFONT designs.

You might like to read Bruno Voisin's http://homepage.mac.com/ 
bkerstetter/tex/fonttutorial-current.html. It, too, names some files  
to make some proof sheet of a newly installed font. Philipp Lehman's  
fontinstallationguide is nice, too, (100 pages) and it's already on  
your disk: texdoc fontinstallationguide.

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
