I'm not sure about this. I don't remember everything from the  
detailed explanations Gerben put together patiently for us in his  
posts some time ago, and I don't really have the time to search my  
mail archive right now, but I was under the impression that

	sudo -H updmap-sys

did precisely that: take input (ie map files) from either ~/Library/ 
texmf/ or /Library/teTeX/share/temf.local/, and create output (ie  
psfonts.map pdftex.map etc.) with the proper permissions and settings  
in /Library/teTeX/share/temf.local/.

I don't remember for sure what are the respective roles of the -H  
option and of the -sys suffix, but I thought that's what the  
combination did. But I may very well be wrong.
