This includes copying the existing .otf files into a temporary directory 
and using the convert.sh script to produce the Type1 fonts (with lcdf 
doing the work). The conversion did give some warning messages about 
alternate ways of creating some curves, but did proceed to complete the

~/Library/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg, then run " sudo mktexlsr" followed by 
"sudo updmap-sys". This worked, e.g., for installing in ~/Library/texmf 
the Lucida Type1 fonts from TUG and the MathTimePro 2 Type1 fonts from 
Personal TeX.

Yes, I do have a  ~/Library/texlive/2011/texmf-config directory -- AND a
  ~/Library/texlive/2011/texmf-var directory. And YES, I did at some 
time months ago run 'updmap' or possibly even 'sudo 'updmap' as I 
struggled to try to comprehend how the whole process of integrating new 
font maps worked.

Should I delete _both_ of those local directories before using

   sudo updmap-sys

with TeXLive 2011?
