If I understood things correctly (but that's really a big  
assumption), formerly:

sudo -H updmap-sys  ->  reads only from texmf.local, and writes in  

sudo updmap-sys  ->  reads from both texmf.local and ~/Library/texmf,  
and writes in texmf.local

With now updmap being equivalent to updmap-sys, I guess "sudo  
updmap" (without the -H option) would do for you. Is this correct?

If that is indeed correct, editing texmf.cnf is required only if you  
want a completely personal setup, with updmap both reading and  
writing in ~/Library/texmf (for example in case you have strictly  
personal fonts, that you don't want other account owners on your Mac  
to see).

Again, is this interpretation correct?
