Odd (that updmap.log was recreated each time)!

Briefly (see also section 4 of <http://www.tug.org/mactex/fonts/ 

- .afm files (for dvipdfm) inside ~/Library/texmf/fonts/afm/

- .enc files inside ~/Library/texmf/fonts/enc/

- .map files inside ~/Library/texmf/fonts/map/

- .tfm files inside ~/Library/texmf/fonts/tfm/

- .pfb files inside ~/Library/texmf/fonts/type1/

- .vf files inside ~/Library/texmf/fonts/vf/

- .fd and .sty files inside ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/

Afterwards, run "sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map <mapfilename>.map"  
where <mapfilename> is the name of your map file.

Where exactly TeX and friends look for certain files is defined by / 
Library/teTeX/texmf.cnf and /Library/teTeX/share/texmf/web2c/ 
texmf.cnf. You may also use the kpsewhich utility, as described in  
section 3.5 of /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/doc/programs/ 
kpathsea.pdf. For example, to know where TeX (or rather dvips, pdftex  
and dvipdfm) look for .map files, use "kpsewhich --show- 
path=map" (beware, the output isn't especially user-friendly, a few  
carriage returns would help).

Hope this helps,
