Yep, it does.

I think this may be the issue. I don't seem to have the same file  
structure that you refer to.  More info below...

Yes, we get

I get
updmap: This is updmap, version $Id: updmap 17423 2010-03-11 17:53:34Z  
karl $
updmap: using transcript file `/Users/lorihughes/Library/texlive/2010/ 
Map lucida.map
Map lucida.map

(Map lucida.map indeed appears twice...)

I can't do this because I cannot find this /usr/local/texlive/texmf- 
local directory path.

So I entered ls -a to see if that path were hidden, and I got this  

Macintosh:~ lorihughes$ ls -a
.			.dropbox		Library
..			.sh_history		Movies
.CFUserTextEncoding	.texlive2008		Music
.DS_Store		.texlive2009		Pictures
.DownloadManager	Applications		Public
.Trash			Desktop			Sambucus Data
.adobe			Documents		Send Registration
.bash_history		Downloads		Sites
.cups			Dropbox			

When I use MacOSX and look for this file path, I cannot find it.   
Within the Library folder, I have folders called texlive and texmf,  
but I cannot find folders with those names *outside* of Library.

I get

The file /Users/lorihughes/kpsewhich --var-value TEXMFLOCAL does not

I am fondly remembering the days of afm2tfm and the manually entering  
the necessary lines into the psfonts.map file...  : )   Keep the  
suggestions coming! I am persistent. We'll get it eventually.
