I remember now why I tried to put the additional local font support 
files in ~/Library/texmf: because on my iMac, that's on the internal HD, 
whereas /usr is on the start-up SSD. The former has twice as much 
capacity as the latter.

Is there a way to use ~/Library/texmf instead of 
/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local that will avoid problems, e.g., with 
errors or warnings when using TeXLive Utility, or otherwise? Or is it 
just not a very good idea?
