[texhax] Font installation

Dear all,

I have not yet been able to resolve this issue. I'm trying to install two
adobe fonts that I have used with TeX before (AGaramond and Frutiger). This
time it is not working at all. I have put all the font files in my
TEXMFLOCAL directory but I can't add the map files. The output of
updmap-sys is:

$ updmap-sys --enable Map=agaramond.map
[sudo] password for henrikfr:
updmap is using the following updmap.cfg files (in precedence order):
updmap is using the following updmap.cfg file for writing changes:
/usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-config/web2c/updmap.cfg unchanged.  Map files
not recreated.
updmap: Updating ls-R files.

As you can see the texmf-local directory is not included here which makes
me think there is something wrong with the environment variables. This is
what I have currently:

$ kpsewhich --var-value TEXMFLOCAL
$ kpsewhich --var-value TEXMFHOME
]$ kpsewhich --var-value TEXMFVAR

Any suggestions?
