texmf-dist/fonts/vf/public/yhmath/yhcmex10.vf refers to yrcmex10

Google found postings on MacOSX-TeX discussing the problem with 
yhmath and a recommendation to change a map file that doesn't look like

I don't follow this reasoning -- LaTeX looks for yhcmex10, finds the .vf
file, and is told to look for yrcmex10.
