Unless you put yourself some map files there, for example inside ~/ 
Library/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/updmap/, then yes I think you can  
remove these directories safely.

In relation with the move to per-user configurations inside TeXLive  
2005, and the support nightmare this created for gwTeX, Gerben  
explained a couple of months ago what shouldn't be inside ~/Library/ 
texmf and can be deleted:

Since then Gerben has decided to drop support for per-user settings  
completely; as a result I'm not sure whether this "Remove per-user  
settings" instruction exists any longer in the TeX i-Package  
configuration phase.
