1)In gwTeX you should place the fonts in the proper sub-directories
of texmk.pkgs not texmf.local. An then run
so that the TeX system can find the files.
2)To guarantee no fonts that may still be in your personal tree are used
sudo -H ...
before commands. sudo alone temporarily gives an admin user root
rights but still uses the users home directory as $HOME; sudo -H also
switches to roots home directory $HOME where there is no ~/Library/
3)ALWAYS use the -sys versions of the commands (e.g., updmap-sys, not
updmap). Gerben's gwTeX, traditionally made the two commands synonyms
but you should get into good habits in case you go over to a gwTeX
that isn't configured that way or MacTeX. The -sys versions of the
commands try to put the map files, etc., in the proper place in the
system TeX trees (texmf.local in gwTeX) while the non-sys version
will write to your personal texmf tree---this has lead to tons of
problems when trying to diagnose problems as you can see.
Hope I've got this all straight.
