For (font) MAP files it's easy, either private

	kpsewhich -show-path=.map -engine=xetex | tr : '\n' | grep $USER | sort

or for the system

	kpsewhich -show-path=.map -engine=xetex | tr : '\n' | grep texmf-local | sort

(to be executed on a command line). TEC files are not yet found by kpsewhich. Them and their text version MAP files are mostly stored under /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/fonts/misc/xetex/fontmapping and then some subdirectory. So you could shoose




If you choose to install in the system's local area you need to use elevated privileges (sudo) and finish with

	sudo texhash /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local



Almost anything is easier to get into than out of.
