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

Well, the answer to that is that the quotes need to be backticks (`)
rather than apostrophes (').  But from what you say, it sounds like it
will be an empty or nonexistent directory
(/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local), so I'm not sure what it buys us.

In general, putting everything under /usr/local shouldn't be necessary,
as far as I know.  You already have lucida.map in updmap.cfg, and
kpsewhich can find lucida.map, so why won't it update
{pdftex,psfonts}.map?  I don't know.  Axel's final recipe:

 	sudo texhash
 	sudo updmap-sys --nohash --nomkmap --syncwithtrees
 	sudo updmap-sys --enable Map=lucida.map

looks like it's worth a try to me.  At least it shouldn't do any harm.

    manually entering the necessary lines into the psfonts.map file... : )

You can still do that if you want :).  Find the file lucida.map,
copy its contents into psfonts.map and pdftex.map.  kpsewhich should
return the full paths to each of those files.

Yes, that is correct.  The structure of the .zip file has all the needed
(sub)directories for unpacking.
