Yes, if you use Gerben Wierda's implementation (TeXLive 2004 or 2005), 
they will go automatically in your own ~/Library/texmf/fonts/map 
directory. Otherwise, if you use teTeX from Fink for example, you will 
have to indicate to "updmap" the place of your map files, by doing :

updmap --outputdir /Library/texmf/dvips/map

(teTeX from Fink being older,  the map files must be placed in your 
texmf/dvips directory, if I remember well)

NB : thanks to Michel Bovani, the Fourier fonts designer, for having 
indicated all this "updmap trick" to me !

Good luck,

Franck Pastor
