Thanks Michael,

Here is what I get:

Kyle-Johnsons-MacBook-Pro:usr kbj$ kpsewhich psfonts.map
Kyle-Johnsons-MacBook-Pro:usr kbj$

I didn't know of the existence of /Users/kbj/.texlive2009 -- this is  
supposed to be here? At any rate, there are no entries in this  
psfonts.map for MinionPro, and so this is likely my problem. But I  
don't know what to do to generate them. Why didn't updmap-sys do this?

Thanks again,
