On the contrary: with the fonts and in particular the MAP file
fragments in the private ~/Library/texmf tree the above command's
output must be:
I work in such an environment, built with updmap, although I have to
confess that it's a long time that I used dvips (around last
Christmas, checking the use of TTF from private MAP file fragments).
I am committed to pdfTeX ... What reason makes you stick to dvips?

The contents of ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist can also affect command
line programmes. The environment variables set by ~/.MacOSX/
environment.plist work in an universal system-wide scope. They are
the only (?) way to make these environment variable settings known to
Mac OS X GUI applications.
