Hi Jindrich,

(why this email only to me?, I put texlive on cc)

Yes: But I guess I know what you did wrong (someone else did probably
the same error while packaging):

Do the FC people create a new updmap.cfg of just take the one from TeX

If you take the one in the TL2007 then you are lost!!! It does not
correspond to what you have installed.

You should have taken a look at the included .tpm files and ONLY added
antries to the updmap.cfg for those packages containing something like
      <TPM:Execute function="addMap" mode="mixed" parameter="cm-super-t1.map"/>
      <TPM:Execute function="addMap" mode="mixed" parameter="cm-super-t2a.map"/>
      <TPM:Execute function="addMap" mode="mixed" parameter="cm-super-t2b.map"/>
      <TPM:Execute function="addMap" mode="mixed" parameter="cm-super-t2c.map"/>
      <TPM:Execute function="addMap" mode="mixed" parameter="cm-super-ts1.map"/>
      <TPM:Execute function="addMap" mode="mixed" parameter="cm-super-x2.map"/>

You should NOT add map files to updmap.cfg if they are not

It seems that cm-super is not installed, but the
dvipdfm/t1-cmsuper-t1.amp is shipped with context. Now, you ask updmap
to include cm-super-t1.map and it tries hard to find it, and takes the
dvipdfm one, which is a bad thing.

Unit learned: Read tpm files, and for 2008 the texlive.tlpdb, and do NOT
take anything as is.

Or read the installer (shell script).
