I understand, but I'm fairly sure that the sort of utility I'm using - one
that builds all the support font files - SHOULD be putting them in 
~/Library/texlive/2011. For fonts, I expect enc, map, tfm, type1,
and vf fonts will be put in ~/Library/texlive/2011/texmf-var. In
~/Library/texmf go .sty and .fd files, among others. I'm happy to
hear other opinions on this, but this is what I've seen for years and
I believe it to be correct.
