You were using updmap or fmtutil or texconfig without -sys as
addition to the script's name and without 'sudo -H' before the command!
In ~/Library/texmf you can find a few directory trees which will
have these personal configuration files, most probably ~/Library/
texmf/web2c and ~/Library/texmf/fonts. Gerben Wierda once described
in a message exactly these files (I don't have it local). You're
probably able to find it, it was a final (?) description of these
changes due to teTeX 3 and the personal configuration files created ...
OK, I looked into a Perl script:
if (-e "$dir/Library/texmf/tex/generic/config/
-e "$dir/Library/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg" or
-e "$dir/Library/texmf/web2c/fmtutil.cnf" or
substitute $dir with ~ or $HOME!
