You're right, I should have known. It's by looking at what this  
configure stage does (in the Subprocess Output panel) that I had  
noticed the existence of --nohash and --nomkmap options, allowing the  
user to merely add or comment out map files in updmap.cfg without  
going each time through the lengthy process of running texhash and  
building the global map files psfonts.map etc.

But I hadn't paid attention to --syncwithtrees. Thanks for pointing out.

Thus it seems, as an example, that for performing with TeXLive what I  
had so far being doing through the GUI of the Configure stage of the  
gwTeX i-Package, I need to run from Terminal:

	sudo -H updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --syncwithtrees
	sudo -H updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --setoption  
dvipsDownloadBase35 true
	sudo -H updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --disable belleek.map
	sudo -H updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --enable Map mt-yy.map
	sudo -H updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --enable Map lucida.map
	sudo -H updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --enable Map lucidabr-o.map
	sudo -H updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --enable Map lumath-o.map
	sudo -H updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --enable Map wolfram.map
	sudo -H updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --enable Map zpeu.map
	sudo -H updmap-sys

I do hope that somebody with programming skills will pick up the idea  
I had mentioned earlier of transforming the TeX Distribution system  
preference panel into a TeX Configuration panel, running these tasks  
(as well as language selection, format selection and the like)  
through a GUI similar to that of i-Installer. Unfortunately I have no  
such skills.

BTW, regarding this time gwTeX: the TeX-Gyre i-Package enables the  
corresponding map files qbk.map, qpl.map, qtm.map and qcs.map as  
MixedMap, while TeX Live enables them as Map. Given there are AFAIK  
no matching PK fonts, why MixedMap? Is this on purpose?
