The lucida-complete distribution unpacks lucida.map in /fonts/map/dvips/
updmap-sys --enable lucida.map doesn't get found there, following the
installation instructions that come with the distribution.
I looked in /fonts/map/dvips/ and found that the fonts installed by
getnonfreefonts all had subdirectories where they kept the map files.
I made a subdirectory, lucida, and moved lucida.map there.
updmap-sys --enable lucida.map didn't feel it needed to update
anything, so I had to run updmap-sys without the --enable switch.
This found the map file and all is well.
I ran texhash a couple of times. Once after the original installation
and again after I moved lucida.map. I don't know if updmap-sys
depends on the texlsr database, but the successful run of updmap-sys
followed a call to texhash.
It looks to me as if the tex directory structure has changed since the
lucida-complete distribution was put together, and that it needs to be
changed to work correctly on a Macintosh.
All the best,
