More than two hours ago, I sent the following reply to Karl Berry's  
message, but as it hasn't reached the list, I post it again (sorry if  
both my messages arrive eventually...):

In my case (Mac OS X), updmap.cfg in


is also the active one (the one in .../texmf-var is the original). It  
gets created [addition: it gets created automatically] when I add my  
personal maps (lucida, MinionPro, etc.), and further additions by  
tlmgr also go there; these are the last lines in

Map lucida.map
Map MinionPro.map
Map pmn.map
Map pnb.map
Map garuda-c90.map
Map norasi-c90.map

These are the dates of /usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf-config/web2c/
