[OS X TeX] i-Installer and local maps and hyphenation patterns

Hi all,
I would like to point out the following problems with i-Installer. I 
need hyphenation patterns for languages not included in the standard 
distribution. I have put all the necessary files in my ~/Library/texmf 
subfolders and I have changed language.dat and language.def accordingly. 
Upon configuration, i-Installer does show my local hyphenation patterns 
in the list of languages, but they are not subsequently activated even 
if I check their checkboxes.

Something similar happens with any font that I have installed locally 
(i.e., in ~/Library/texmf): i-Installer shows the corresponding map file 
but it does not activate it even if I select it.

These two problems are a bit bothering, because I need to rebuild the 
format files from the command line and to run updmap-sys for every local 
font every time I update gwTeX (and updates have been not so rare on 
these days...).

En passant, when I choose to build xetex and xelatex formats in 
i-Installer (not selected by default), they are correctly built, but 
then in fmtutil.cnf the corresponding lines are commented out.

Is there a way to fix these?
