Either this sentence or your last sentence I am citing is a lie.
Which one is it? And why did you destroy your working TeX system?
Can't you use Time Machine to restore the working setup?
/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local is the proper branch to install local
additions. After you've added something or you've renamed something,
it is necessary to run
When you move MAP file fragments around it is recommended (usually
one isn't updating the MAP files every day or hour) to run
sudo updmap-sys --syncwithtrees
afterwards. And if the MAP fragments in the personal TeX are changed,
then it's recommended to also run

Is the MAP file fragment really Minion.map with a capital M? Or is it
The directory /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts should have at
least these directories:
drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 3 Mär 2007 map
drwxr-xr-x 61 root wheel 2074 30 Jun 2007 tfm
drwxr-xr-x 10 root wheel 340 30 Jun 2007 type1
drwxr-xr-x 11 root wheel 374 30 Jun 2007 vf
MAP file fragments belong in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/map/
dvips into a sub-directory "MinionPro" or such, that gives a hint to
which package or font family these MAP file fragments belong.
The same name should be used in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/
tfm to receive the TFM files, in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/
type1 to receive the PostScript Type 1 font files, in /usr/local/
texlive/texmf-local/fonts/vf to receive the VF files.
According to the saved output file from 'kpsewhich -debug 8 MinionPro-
Regular-Base-ab.tfm' from earlier today the tree /usr/local/texlive/
2007/../texmf-local/fonts/tfm is not searched but looked up from its
ls-R hash file for TFM files. (The private tree /Users/Matthew/
Library/texmf/fonts/tfm is really searched.) MAP file fragments in
the /usr/local/texlive/2007/../texmf-local/fonts/map tree are are
looked up too. (The private tree /Users/Matthew/Library/texmf/fonts/
mapm is really searched.) The notation ``..´´ in a pathname stands
for "one directory level higher" or, in our case, ``2007/..´´ is
substituted with nothing or ``/usr/local/texlive/2007/../texmf-local
´´ is substituted with ``/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local´´. So
kpsewhich is working fine and obviously the particles of the
MinionPro package are (were) not correctly installed. Proof: they
were not found in their proper places according to the TeX
