My texmf.cnf file has the same line.  Also, when I run texhash, it  
puts the map file into ls-R, but kpsewhich doesn't recognize it:

Eric-Jablow-Laptop:texmf-local erjablow$ pwd;ls;sudo texhash; grep -C  
5 makor2.map ls-R;echo NOW, KPSEWHICH; kpsewhich makor2.map
bibtex		fonts		metapost	tex
dvips		ls-R		omega		web2c
texhash: Updating /usr/local/texlive/2007/../texmf-local/ls-R...
texhash: Updating /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf/ls-R...
texhash: Updating /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-config/ls-R...
texhash: Updating /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-dist/ls-R...
texhash: Updating /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-var/ls-R...
texhash: Done.




Eric-Jablow-Laptop:texmf-local erjablow$


Why is this so difficult?
