You're not supposed to edit updmap.cfg manually on the OS X TeX  
distributions, the command-line utilities updmap and updmap-sys are  
here to do that consistently.

You need probably to "disable" (ie comment out) frutiger.map in  
updmap.cfg, then enable it again using updmap, so that updmap will  
notice updmap.cfg has changed and will hence undertake rebuilding  
psfonts.map etc. How exactly that needs to be done depends on the  
details of your TeX configuration.

First I would recommend deleting your modified updmap.cfg  
alltogether, if you've added an updmap.cfg inside ~/Library/texmf/ 
web2c; if you've edited /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-var/web2c/ 
updmap.cfg or /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.local/web2c/updmap.cfg, do  
nothing. Then...

Case 1: you're using the default configuration which is to install  
things system-wide, inside /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.pkgs for gwTeX or / 
usr/local/texlive/texmf-local for TeXLive. In case you've installed  
frutiger.map in either location, then run

	sudo updmap-sys -H --disable frutiger.map
	sudo updmap-sys -H --enable Map frutiger.map

and in case you've installed frutiger.map in your home directory  
inside ~/Library/texmf, then run

	sudo updmap-sys --disable frutiger.map
	sudo updmap-sys --enable Map frutiger.map

The first instruction (with --disable) will probably do nothing and  
return a warning telling there was nothing to disable, it's just here  
as a safety measure and will do no harm.

Case 2: you've modified your TeX configuration to be account-specific  
(ie add fonts and map file fragments for your user account only,  
create formats and map files in this account, etc.), namely to  
install all the additions inside ~/Library/texmf. That's what TeX  
wizards would probably want to do. Then you would need to run, I think,

	updmap --disable frutiger.map
	updmap --enable Map frutiger.map

If you don't understand what this second case means, don't worry:  
you're probably not affected, you're just using the default setup  
from case 1.

Beware also that if you're using this default setup, you shouldn't  
have any of the files:


Having any of them, and not having willingly altered the default  
MacTeX/TeXLive or gwTeX install to become user-specific, would  
indicate you've got a mixed setup mixing up cases 1 and 2, which  
wouldn't be a good sign.

Hope this helps,
