The non-sys versions of fmtutil(-sys) and updmap(-sys) commands will  
build in ~/Library/texmf/ (web2c or fonts/maps/...); they are meant  
to be used for personal configurations as opposed to system (all  
user) configuration which is done using the -sys versions of the  
commands and builds in the texmf.local branch. The problem is that  
unless you realize what you did later most changes at the texmf.local  
level will not get picked up since the files will be found in your  
personal branch before the ones in the texmf.local branch of the TeX  

Good Luck,
