Why aren't you using texmf.local? It's precisely here to put extra  
TeX-related things for all users of your machine. If you were using  
it, then running updmap-sys and texhash after the update would be  
sufficient. (And any reinstall of the TeX i-package doesn't erase  
anything you might have added inside texmf.local.)

Beware: in case you've been using updmap (as opposed with updmap-sys)  
with recent versions of Gerben's distro, it is likely to have  
erroneously created files inside ~/Library/texmf/, and this files  
will create problems for you. Namely, erase, if they exist:

~/Library/texmf/web2c/ (the whole directory)
~/Library/texmf/fonts/map/ (the whole directory)

(unless you have put files there yourself), then re-run the Configure  
stage of the TeX i-Package.

And in any case, if you need to run updmap, run it in the form "sudo - 
H updmap" to obtain what "sudo updmap" was previously doing in former  
versions of gwTeX (Gerben isn't the culprit, it's a breaking of  
compatibility introduced in recent versions of teTeX, upon which  
Gerben is relying).
