As Ralf has already mentioned, I have put the support files for Mathematica
from the Mathematica CD. This is because they are included in every new
release so I don't want to look into it what they have changed. So I don't
use the TL ones, I have deleted them.

In my distribution of Mathematica 4, Adobe Garamond, Linotype Optima or
Jason etc. are not included. Nevertheless this fonts are copyrighted
material so who is using them can include them in his maps. But I don't
have this fonts so such entries would be useless for me.
And Ralph wrotes:

But older Mma versions have other versions so I have to include the one I
need (e.g. on my old Mac this is Mathematica 3 and there I have to use the
corrected ones from the Wolfram web site) and not the "up to date" ones for
the actual version. Now version 5 is the actual Mathematica release and I'm
still using version 4 so I cannot use the TL distribution if the newest
ones are included.
On the other hand there is a good explanation on the Wolfram web site how
to include the fonts to a TeX distribution for different Mathematica
versions, see
http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/interface/export/
so it should be not to complicated do adopt it to the used TL distribution.
