There is half a handful of options you could do:

• check ~/.texlive2008/texmf-var/web2c/updmap.log
• run updmap --syncwithtrees
• remove (or rename) ~/Library/texmf
• get the urw++ Arial font support files again (it probably will  
recreate ~/Library/texmf)
• no more ideas, too early in the morning, maybe the end of  
~/.texlive2008/texmf-var/web2c/updmap.log will produce some more

The fact that you neither can enable nor disable a particular MAP  
file fragment indicates that updmap's configuration file might  
contain some MAP file fragments from TeX Live 2007 ... Obviously the  
routine to install (Mac)TeX Live 2008 needs an improvement here:  
detect ~/Library/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg – and put it aside. Once  
~/.texlive200x/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg exists, ~/Library/texmf/ 
web2c/updmap.cfg is not read again. But the first time updmap is run  
(privately), it's surely fed from ~/Library/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg,  
which is then saved, or kept, as ~/.texlive200x/texmf-config/web2c/ 

So my recommendation is to delete (or rename) ~/.texlive2008/texmf- 
config/web2c/updmap.cfg and ~/Library/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg. If  
neither of these files exists, updmap would need to use /usr/local/ 
texlive/2008/texmf-var/web2c/updmap.cfg or such. These system files  
should be OK.
