I followed the above recipe, and everything worked well. I installed some
packages, e.g., concrete to test whether fonts generation on-the-fly also
works for various programs, and all test passed well (dvips, 
dviout, dvipdfmx, run from texworks; before every test font was deleted
from my ~/.texlive/....)
Now I going to test also on Linux.

Ps. Karl wrote yesterday about changes in ptex, etc., but I haven't seen 
any changes in repositories (cstug, tug) since 30 June...
