I'd guess that the size difference has more to do with the new way Apple creates pkg files than anything else.

By the way, there have been some folks that said that tlmgr (or TeX Live Utility) updated their TeX Live 2011 to 2012. Don't Do That!. The updmap(-sys) in TeX Live 2012 operates differently than the version in TeX Live 2011 and could cause problems with future updates. simply download and install MacTeX-2012.

Good Luck,
