This last line is the key part: pdfTeX is reading map files from your  
home directory, and these supersede those that have been created by  
updmap-sys. It may be that you have:

- Either be using instructions found on the web or in ReadMe files,  
recommending to edit pdftex.map and dvips.map manually. Don't: either  
these instructions are obsolete, or they have been written with  
specific Linux or Windows distribution of TeX in mind. On OS X, under  
the provision that you've been using Gerben Wierda's distribution,  
the proper way of adding map files is to put the additional map files  
at the appropriate places in the TeX tree, then run texhash (aka  
mktexlsr) then updmap(-sys) to update the relevant pdftex.map,  
dvips.map and dvipdfm.map.

- Or been hit by the unending foo-sys vs. foo debacle, namely you've  
used updmap originally instead of updmap-sys. In the most recent  
version of TeXLive, a backwards-incompatible change has been  
introduced, replacing updmap by two separate scripts updmap-sys (for  
computer-wide configurations) and updmap (for per-user  
configurations). Sadly, it's the new updmaps-sys that provides the  
functionality of the former updmap, while the new updmap works  

In any case, what I would recommend is to erase all the following  
files and directories (pasted from an earlier  message by Gerben  
Wierda), in case they exist:

then re-run updmap-sys then re-run your test.

Right now you must be getting, when running "kpsewhich pdftex.map":

kpsewhich pdftex.map

After erasing the superfluous files and re-running updmap-sys, you  
should get:

kpsewhich pdftex.map

and all should go well from that point on.

You can get more detail by looking eg at the messages:


and the threads they belong to.

And now for a hint of how Gerben feels about this (when not watching  
Netherlands play soccer, of course ;-):


Hope this will work,
