Thanks for the reply. I have some followup questions :-).

(1) My account isn't an admin account, and it's not on the sudo list.  
Is there a way to do this that doesn't involve sudo? (I am the admin  
for the machine. It's just that the account I use on a daily basis  
isn't an admin account.)

(2) Where will the map files go? I'd like to have _everything_ related  
to this end up under ~/Library/texmf, if possible. Is that what will  
happen if I run "sudo updmap-sys --enable Map lucida.map"? If not, is  
there a way to set up TeX so that all the lucida-enabling bits live  
under ~/Library/texmf?
