MacTeX is TeX Live 2007 based. The documentation to TeX Live 2007  
recommends to create a branch outside its core, i.e. not inside /usr/ 
local/texlive/2007 but aside, in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local,  
enabling it to serve TeX also in 2008, 2009, ... Since I am not using  
MacTeX I can't tell what its documentation recommends and I can't  
even tell whether MacTeX's texmf.cnf file (/usr/local/texlive/2007/ 
texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf?) accepts /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local as  
part of a system's TeX installation. My texmf.cnf has a line


which adds this branch to the system (between TEXMFDIST and  
TEXMFSYSVAR). Changing MacTeX's texmf.cnf in a similar way would  
enable it to recognise that branch and you would need to create the  
whole path of directories on the command line

	sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/fonts/map/dvips/misc

to put makor.map there. And whenever you update MacTeX you should  
check whether texmf.cnf was overwritten. Imagining this and not  
wanting to download hundreds of MB each time a slight change happens  
I decided to stick to the original and update this or that using the  
MiKTeX Package Manager, mpm (which won't update binaries, because the  
MiKTeX repositories have no Mac OS X binaries).
