Some time ago I added some lines of code which allows you to run the
updmap script provided by Fabrice on Unix systems too.  As far as I
remember the difference is that Fabrice's script runs "dir" always and
the script we have in TeX Live runs "ls" instead if it detects that
it's on Unix.

texmf/scripts/tetex/updmap.pl is currently used on Windows only but it
should be possible to test it on Unix systems as well.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
