The default gwTeX setup is to create formats and map files system- 
wide, namely inside /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.local, independent on  
whether the input files and map file fragments used for this are  
installed system-wide , namely inside /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.pkgs, or  
are installed used-specific, namely inside ~/Library/texmf. This was  
done to emulate the behaviour of teTeX 2 I think.

Actually, if I'm not mistaken, upon install gwTeX makes updmap  
synonymous to updmap-sys. Accordingly I think your suggestion would  
simply not work, or give unpredictable results. In order to allow  
user-specific setups, and restore updmap its default behaviour on  
teTeX 3 and TexLive, you would have to install the gwTeX i-Package in  
i-Installer in Expert mode: the choice of whether or not to allow  
user-specific setups (default choice: no) is the last one at the end  
of the Configure stage.

Accordingly, concerning the original poster's question: in case the  
map file fragments for Minion Pro have been installed inside /usr/ 
local/gwTeX/texmf.pkgs, you need to run:

	sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map MinionPro.map

(the "-u root" flag is I think implicit when "-H" is used), and in  
case the map file fragments have been installed inside ~/Library/ 
texmf you need to run:

	sudo updmap-sys --enable Map MinionPro.map
