[OS X TeX] Installing Lucida fonts under home folder

Hi all,

So I'm installing the Lucida fonts that I just purchased from TUG  
under my home folder (i.e. in ~/Library/texmf), and the instructions  
are a bit too cryptic. So I need some help. I unzipped the lucida- 
complete file, and I put all the files in the right places (I think)  
under ~/Library/texmf. If I'm reading the instructions correctly, what  
I need to do next is run updmap (not updmap-sys, because I'm just  
installing them for myself, right?), but I have some questions.

(1) What should my current working directory be when I run updmap?  
Does it matter?

(2) Where should I put the output files? Do I need to use the -- 
outputdir directory option? If so, what argument? Do I just run:

updmap --enable Map lucida.map

or do I need to use some other options?

(3) Anything else I need to do?
