Download and install the 'winfonts' package from CTAN:

Installation instructions are for windoze unfortunately. Unpack the zipfile in
the appropriate directory (for my TeXLive it would be in
/usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf-var/, don't know about teTeX). If necessary,
download the fonts from http://sourceforge.net/projects/corefonts/files/
copy the truetype fonts to the appropriate directory
(/usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf-var/fonts/truetype for my TeXLive install).
Run mktexlsr. Now add winfonts.map to your updmap.cfg file, and run updmap.
You should then be able to use the fonts with \usepackage{winfonts}.

The TeX in ports is outdated and abandoned upstream. Install TeXLive instead.

Your local TeX User Group will probably have a mailing list.
