(Sorry for the delayed reply.)
Shouldn't the generated font files be placed in /var/cache/fonts, and
not regenerated on every run when they're not in the current directory?
That's the intent, yes.
The only thing I can think of is that perhaps your assignment of
/var/cache/fonts was not effective for some reason. Running
kpsewhich -var-value=VARTEXFONTS might show something.
Also, when the files are generated, the exact command line should be
shown. Running that command directly from the shell with something like
sh -vx mktexwhatever ...
should show a lot of information about what things are getting set to
Also, you are probably better off using type1 fonts than these bitmap
fonts in the first place. Incorporating the cm-super package into your
installation will give you that, if you don't already have it.
Hope this helps a little.
