The installer puts nothing in your HOME folder.

Also, if you don't have fonts installed in your personal tree this would still create a a map file in your HOME folder that would override the one at system level so you would have to make sure that you ran updmap every time updmap-sys got run. Why would you want this extra pain?

Good Luck,
