No, just one place below TEXMFLOCAL/fonts/map is enbough. If you do
not plan to add a lot of maps, no subdirectories are needed, otherwise
I would recommend creation of subdirectories with descriptive names
(eg chinese in your case). Mere putting the map files to that
directory does not enable the fonts, you have to instruct TL to create
configuration files for all programs. Simle method is to use
updmap-sys --enable Map=something.map, better way is to list your map
files in updmap-local.cfg. It has one nice advantage: when you install
TeX Live 2012 (after it is available), it will automatically find your
updmap-local.cfg and your map files will be added automatically. It's
thus really worth spending a bit more time.
