I did enable MnSymbol.map. Here is what I get when I type your updmap  

Kyle-Johnsons-MacBook-Pro:~ kbj$ updmap --listmaps|grep 'Map M'
updmap: This is updmap, version $Id: updmap 14402 2009-07-23 17:09:15Z karl $
updmap: using transcript file  
Map MorrisIn.map
Map MnSymbol.map

Here is the file I'm trying to typeset:



Here is a sample. foo.
more of a sample.


I believe MinionPro.sty calls MnSymbol.sty.

To install MinionPro, I followed the recipes given at  
http://carlo-hamalainen.net/blog/?p=8, except that I put the MinionPro  
stuff in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local instead of the  
/User/Library... I note that these directions put the MnSymbol files  
in /usr/local/share, which is, therefore, what I did. The log, though,  
indicates that it's using MnSymbol.map in /usr/local/texlive/2009.

I don't know if this is relevant.

Thanks for the help. Any suggested next steps?
