Have you tried to remove the gentium.sty file from the same directory as the .tex file? The one in .../texmf-local/... will be found!

I doubt that is the real difference. More than likely it was the renaming of the gentium.map file to psgentium.map which removed an interference with the gentium.map file that is part of TL2012 (and NOT included in TL2011 and earlier).

Good Luck,
