Yes! Splendid idea.

I don't know your backup...

The tape archive (tar file) has an extra "share" part – it's too much.  
The file texmf.cnf (/usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf.cnf adapted, /usr/ 
local/texlive/2010/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf originally coming with the  
TeX distribution) has definitions of font paths:

	VFFONTS = .;$TEXMF/fonts/vf//
	T1FONTS = .;$TEXMF/fonts/type1//;$OSFONTDIR//

The command "kpsexpand '$TFMFONTS'" would reveal where TeX looks for  
TFM font files (VF = Virtual Font, T1 = PostScript Type 1). Your  
additional auto-greek files need to be found there. /usr/local/texlive/ 
texmf-local/fonts/* will be there as /usr/local/texlive/<TeX Live year  
of distribution>/../texmf-local/fonts/*. With

	kpsewhich <one of the font file names>

you can check whether it is found by TeX.

In case you correct the installation path à la

	sudo mv /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/share/* /usr/local/texlive/ 
texmf-local ; sudo rmdir /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/share

you'll need to run

	sudo texhash /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local
	sudo updmap-sys --enable Map=greek.map

Auto-greek will fail to work as long as the files from your previous  
installation are still in place. And take precedence. Could be they're  
somewhere in the ~/Library/texmf tree... The variable $TEXMFVAR should  
give a hint, presumingly.
