Since the local files are earlier in the search sequence the user copy 
would be found first and so all enable and disable changes would work 
without superuser permissions. But to create the final map files for 
dvipdfm, dvips, and pdftex again a superuser is needed -- except you 
create your own ~/Library/texmf/fonts/map/{dvipfm,dvips,pdftex}/updmap 
tree too!
