No, no! You mixing up things. Edward clearly wrote about printing  
from a buffer or a region inside Aquamacs Emacs. Then the usual Mac  
OS X print dialog opens from which you can choose a few different  
formats to save to a PDF file.

This is set for the (user's) TeX installation and cannot be  
overridden on the command line (but an option exists to make a  
change). Look up the man page of updmap.cfg, the file(s) the updmap  
or updmap-sys utilities work on. Both these utilities create the  
settings for the user or for the whole system. And the user's setting  
overrides the one for the system.

Aquamacs Emacs can't do this. You're either using the built-in latex- 
mode, or the command line, or AUCTeX, or ...
