Which version of TeX are you using?

I think some time in summer the system of <tool> vs. <tool>-sys was  
withdrawn and only 'experts' was given the chance to get <tool> and  
<tool>-sys back.

Could you check whether you have the files ~/Library/texmf/web2c/ 
updmap.cfg and ~/Library/texmf/web2c/updmap.log and which date and  
owner they have? If these files exist and are recent, then you'll  
also have MAP files in ~/texmf/fonts/map/dvipdfm/updmap, ~/texmf/ 
fonts/map/dvips/updmap, and ~/texmf/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap. If all  
this is true, then you have created MAP files for your account only  
and would need to remove them with:

	cd ; sudo rm -rf texmf/fonts/map

Did you run texhash after installing the Gentium files? If not, you  
can now invoke 'sudo texhash' and update afterwards the MAP files with

	sudo updmap-sys --enable Map gentium.map



These are my principles and if you don't like them... well, I have
