[tex-live] updmap and TEXMFHOME

In my 


I'm instructed to use either 

updmap-sys --enable Map=foo.map

or add entries to TEXMFLOCAL/web2c/updmap-local.cfg
and call

tlmgr generate updmap

This is surely not right for *private* local fonts; i.e., fonts that are
in my TEXMFHOME tree, not in TEXMFLOCAL? I can add Map entries using
updmap -e or updmap --enable Map=... but it seems those entries are
clobbered when tlmgr updates.

I conjectured that I should add entries to TEXMFHOME/web2c/updmap-local.cfg 
but then what do I use to re-generate
