isn't this a classical "make" problem? updmap takes long time but is
only needed if map stuff has changed. There is the "newer" program in
tex live, maybe one could use "newer" to check if at least a map file or
the updmap.cfg file has been changed after .map output files were
generated, and only then run updmap?
