Odd (that updmap.log was recreated each time)!

Briefly (see also section 4 of <http://www.tug.org/mactex/fonts/
- .afm files (for dvipdfm) inside ~/Library/texmf/fonts/afm/
- .enc files inside ~/Library/texmf/fonts/enc/
- .map files inside ~/Library/texmf/fonts/map/
- .tfm files inside ~/Library/texmf/fonts/tfm/
- .pfb files inside ~/Library/texmf/fonts/type1/
- .vf files inside ~/Library/texmf/fonts/vf/
- .fd and .sty files inside ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/
Afterwards, run "sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map <mapfilename>.map"
where <mapfilename> is the name of your map file.
Where exactly TeX and friends look for certain files is defined by /
Library/teTeX/texmf.cnf and /Library/teTeX/share/texmf/web2c/
texmf.cnf. You may also use the kpsewhich utility, as described in
section 3.5 of /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/doc/programs/
kpathsea.pdf. For example, to know where TeX (or rather dvips, pdftex
and dvipdfm) look for .map files, use "kpsewhich --show-
path=map" (beware, the output isn't especially user-friendly, a few
carriage returns would help).
Hope this helps,
