[tex-live] texlive docs --- lucida fonts?

First, let me say that I very much appreciate your help.  I feel like I
am searching in the dark.

Is the following a bug or feature: updmap does not seem to search in the
/usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/ hierarchy.  That is, I learned I could do
    # updmap --edit
and added
    Map lucida.map
but when I run updmap, I get an error that this map file is not found. 
In fact, updmap never looks into the local hierarchy.  When I link the
lucida.map file from the lucida distribution into the
/usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf-dist/fonts/map/dvips/lucida.map, updmap
completes correctly, and I can see that it grokked the lucida.map file. 
Good.  Following Reinhard, I enabled the Map, though I think it had
already gotten the idea that I had a lucida.map file.

I also followed Karl's suggestion and moved the fonts up. 

# kpsewhich lbmo.pfb

I reran texhash, and for good measure, a few more updmap's and
texhash's.  :-).

Thanks, Karl, also for the next suggestion, which was to check that my
fonts are in psfonts.map.  They are:

Alas, this still does not work.  Here is exactly how it fails:

# more test.tex

% shameless copy: I am not sure what this does, but I presume it should work
\usepackage{textcomp} % to get the right copyright, etc. % use Lucida
fonts for both text and math.
\usepackage[altbullet]{lucidabr}     % get larger bullet
\DeclareEncodingSubset{TS1}{hlh}{1}  % including \oldstylenums

I did an strace on pdflatex, and saw that it never looks for .pfb and
.afm files in the local hierarchy, either.

I am just about ready to hardcode font file locations into the
lucida.map file, but I can't imagine that this would be the recommended
installation procedure.

Thanks again for any help.
