So either remove the whole (sub-)directory tree (best by: 'sudo rm - 
rf /Users/kbj/.texlive2009' to avoid warnings that some files built by  
an accidental 'sudo updmap ...' cannot be removed) or enable the two  
MAP file fragments also personally by running updmap instead of 'sudo  
updmap-sys' these two times. (IMO "ending is better than mending.")

The "-sys" variants work on the "systematic" TeX tree, i.e., /usr/ 
local/texlive/2009. This area belongs to the super-user and therefore  
you have to use sudo in order to change something in this area. The  
non-sys commands work only in your personal are, i.e., /Users/kbj  
(your HOME directory) and here particularly on /Users/ 
kbj/.texlive2009. When in your personal areas a file with same name as  
in the system's area is found, then this personal variant is used.
