Great (I take it this is the file
? Just downloaded and tested it, and it works now :-)

BTW, while testing this I found a small glitch in updmap:
When the line

egrep '^(Mixed|)Map' /usr/TeX/texmf-var/web2c/updmap.cfg

returns no results (which was the case with the old updmap.cfg
from texlive7-1-20020520.iso), the script will hang until
interrupted with `Ctrl-C' with a `missing argument' error
from kpsewhich; here's the output of updmap with `set -x':

++ locateMaps '^(Mixed|)Map'
+++ egrep '^(Mixed|)Map' /usr/TeX/texmf-var/web2c/updmap.cfg
+++ awk '{ for (i=2; i <= NF; ++i) {print $i} }'
+++ sed 's@#.*@@'
+++ sort
+++ uniq
++ locateDvipsCfg
++ kpsewhich '--format=dvips config'
Missing argument. Try `kpsewhich --help' for more information.
