The problem is that fmtutil is probably not seeing your changed 
texmf.cnf. Try "kpsewhich texmf.cnf"; this shows which one fmtutil will 
use. If it's not your changed one, you can first try to run "sudo 
mktexlsr /usr/local/teTeX" and see if this helps, but otherwise the 
simplest way is to replace the original texmf.cnf (after backing it up, 
of course) by your modified one. I am pretty sure that there is also a 
combination of a couple of TeX's 75 or so environment variables that 
will do the trick, but modifiying the original texmf.cnf is faster than 
even reading through the list of all possible environment variables.
