Personnaly, I keep my personal fonts in ~/Library/texmf, and before  
performing an update on my TeX installation, I delete the ~/Library/ 
texmf/web2c directory and all files in the ~/Library/fonts/map  
directory, except my personal map files, of course. Then, after the  
update, I perform "updmap --enable Map somefont.map" on the command  
line, for each map files kept in ~/Library/texmf/fonts/map.

Or if you have many personal fonts, and thus many map files, do   
"updmap --enable Map somefont.map" only once, for one map file, and  
then you only have to edit the updmap.cfg file that now lies in ~/ 
Library/texmf/web2c, adding "Map yourfont2.map", "Map yourfont3.map",  
etc, at the end of the file. And then a mere "updmap" in your  
Terminal is sufficient.
