[tlu] Yosemite workaround

I just downloaded beta 10 on Mavericks and Yosemite and updated
BasicTeX. Everything worked fine on Mavericks.

On Yosemite, unfortunately, the old problem is back. Here is a piece
of the log file.

I also ran into download problems as follows. On both Mavericks and Yosemite, my pref settings only
allow programs from the app store or from a known developer. On Mavericks, I got the standard message
that the app wasn’t by a known developer, I held down the command key and ran the program, and that
was that.

On Yosemite, the message said that the application was damaged and should be thrown in the trash,
and the command key trick didn’t work. I had to reach into preferences and configure to accept all
applications before TlU would run. (Of course after that it runs fine.) Apple sent a note to developers
saying the signing mechanism has changed and apps must be signed on Yosemite or the latest beta of
Mavericks (but the signature will then be recognized on older machines). Since you are “self signing,” I
don’t know if this applies to you.

That’s all I know. The download issue isn’t important at the moment, but the updmap-sys issue is.
