Just for the record: personal administration setups, like made with 
updmap (and not updmap-sys) will be ignored by the TeX i-Package (which 
only works for system-wide use) in case you use the TeX i-Package. The 
result will be that the TeX i-Package will perform stuff like updating 
maps during configuration, but these will not be visible for you as a 
user as you will have your own. Updates to TeX will therefore possibly 
not entirely work for you as they will be installed perfectly but be 
overridden by older stuff in your home dir.

Personally, I would advise to install in texmf.local and use "sudo -H 
updmap-sys" (etc.), that way, the TeX i-Package configuration will be 
aware of it and you have only one setup on your system (simpler).
