It seems the changes in font.scm were harmful to MacOS X. On processing, I get:

warning: don't know how to embed "Verdana"="/Library/Fonts/Verdana"

and in the resulting PDF file, the chord names look weird (I believe it's Verdana substituted with Courier).

This seems to be related with pango default font lookup, which I don't understand very well, and with the fact that native fonts don't seem to be handled well by the open source tool chain.

Any suggestions how I could fix this? Should I just add a patch for MacOS to revert to Luxi for the sans serif font?

Yes, I guess that's best. I'd be grateful if you could find out how we can properly embed a dfont file. I know that there are utilities for extracting TTFs from dfonts.
