Replying to my own message, I decided to try running:

sudo updmap --enable Map iffonts.map

and that fixed the problem I was having so that my informal math  
fonts work again. Of course, this brings up the question as to why I  
had to run it again after updating TeX. Related to this, I did notice  
when updating last night that there is now a font map entry for  
informal math. I checked that box during installation -- might that  
be the problem?

Any help and insights would be appreciated.
