When I do that, this is the result:
$ /usr/texbin/updmap --enable Map lucida.map
/usr/texbin/updmap: line 1300: kpsewhich: command not found
/usr/texbin/updmap: line 581: kpsewhich: command not found
updmap: config file updmap.cfg not found.
So, there's one or two problems. The first is that (for reasons I
don't understand, see my recent posts under the subject "Configuring
man pages") my paths are screwed up, and the system isn't picking up
the changes made in /etc/path.d and /etc/manpath.d. Does anyone have
some insight on that? That's why updmap can't find kpsewhich. I'm not
sure if that's the reason that updmap.cfg can't be found.

I'm not installing the fonts system-wide, just in my home directory. I
put my home directory on a separate partition, and I'm hoping that if
I can get the fonts installed there that it will save me this hassle
the next time I migrate my machine or if I have to reinstall Mac OS X.
