[OS X TeX] Problem for installing new fonts in MacTeX (TeXLive2007-dev)

I wanted to install the new lxfonts (specially designed for slides by
Claudio Beccari). I reproduce the usual TDS in my ~/Library/texmf
package and install the fonts files where they must be (it's not the
first time I have to do so!). Then I enter
updmap --enable Map lxfonts.map
That works fine with gwTeX based on TeXLive 2007, but fails on
another computer with the last TeXLive2007-dev implementation
(installed with MacTeX). I get this message that I don't really
updmap: This is updmap, version 1167072206
updmap: using transcript file `/Users/fp/.texlive2007/texmf-var/web2c/
There was a problem finding a proper place to store configuration data.
The message was:
Directory `/Users/fp/.texlive2007/texmf-config' is not writable
To overcome such problems, set up the environment variable
point to a directory tree that is writable to you, e.g.
TEXMFCONFIG=$HOME/texmf; export TEXMFCONFIG
setenv TEXMFCONFIG $HOME/texmf
Indeed, the command "echo $TEXMFCONFIG" produces a blank line.
Since I use the bash shell, I entered then, as asked to me
en then re-run the updmap command: everything has gone fluently, and
my fonts are now installed and usable.
Is there thus a problem with the last MacTeX's TeXLive-dev package
Thanks in advance,
