[XeTeX] psfonts.map not found

I am still wondering why xdv2pdf cannot find psfonts.map.
I am afraid that it relates to exactly where the files are put.

My home texmf is ~/temxf and xelatex etc. are in ~/bin.
The texmf is /usr/local/teTeX/bin (I change the path from when I posted 
the original problem; and the other old installation is in 
/usr/local/share/texmf/, should this be problematic?).

Another question as to the instruction for fink tetex. In the almost 
last step, it says,
$ cd src/XeTeX/share/texmf.local/
$ ln -s /sw/var/lib/texmf/fonts/map/dvips .
But why not "cd src/XeTeX/share/texmf.local/fonts/map"? Running updmap 
warns obsolete places of map files.

I hope I could use xetex at least in some future release and thanks for 
a great software (since I don't like computer modern).
