I installed the "medium" scheme, which got me psnfss, but without the
fonts, so basically psnfss is unusable.

That is what I thought tlmgr was for - but I can't find any package
there that corresponds to "psfonts" or any collectons.

I looked at output of "tlmgr list" which shows a lot of stuff., shows
psnfss is installed (which seems bad - why was psnfss installed
without its dependent files?).
Can someone tell me how I find out which of the names listed by tlmgr
will install the psfonts?
