unicode minus sign glyph missing with serif fonts in macosx backend

This is probably unrelated, but I can't even use serif fonts on the
MacOSX backend (it just shows up as sans-serif). I tried Times New
Roman, Vera, and a Computer Modern unicode font that I normally use).

I noticed that I didn't really get Vera either, probably because I don't
have it installed via the usual OS X way, and the MacOSX backend only
uses fonts that it can find via CTFontCreateWithName or
ATSFontFindFromPostScriptName, depending on the OS X version it's
compiled for. Do you see these fonts in Font Book?

Both Times New Roman and CMU show up in Font Book. (There's also a Bitstream Vera font there, but it's different from the one Matplotlib uses.)

Like I said, this is probably a separate issue. I don't want to distract from the issue Joey raised---especially since I don't normally use the MacOSX backend.
