Hey, I asked you first! :-)

I know that TeX Live Utility has a check box in it's Preferences that says ``install updates for all users'' but I'm not sure what that does. I don't know enough about tlmgr directly to say what that will do.

If you don't share your computer with other users you can do what I do. I put all personal fonts (e.g., Lucida, mathtime pro, etc.) in the texmf-local branch, make sure to run `sudo texhash' and use `sudo updmap-sys' or `sudo -H updmap-sys'. If you want to keep your personal fonts in your personal texmf tree, as you do now, and don't mind using the system-wide map to point to your fonts (this is what I used to do with gwtex) use `sudo updmap-sys' (DON'T use the `-H') to enable you personal fonts map files; this need only be done once and only has to be repeated if you install a new version of MacTeX(TeX Live).

I'm probably being clear as mud.

Good Luck,
