There are several "official" sources of TTFs on OSX:

/Library/Fonts and/or /System/Library/Fonts may contain a couple of  
(insignificant) TT fonts.

lib/fonts contains a set of proportional and monospace Lucida TTFs.

If you have Apple's X11 installed on your machine then check under  
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF too.  (These may or may not have come with  
freetype2 which, I think, is not part of the standard Apple X11  
distribution; I vaguely remember having to install it myself.  Your  
kilometrage, if using Fink/XDarwin, may vary.)
