I don't know if the GNU intlfonts package works on MacOS X. At least
those fonts contain the necessary greek characters with combined
diacritics. I use misc-fixed for classical Greek on GNU/Linux.

But I wonder: why should it be a problem to use the true type fonts?
At least on GNU/Linux under XFree there is no problem with this
AFAICS. Have you tried it?

BTW: There is a Unicode Times font containing Greek characters with
combined diacritics? I ask, because I find misc-fixed somewhat
ugly. Is there a Unicode Courier font, too?
