I've just come across "Installing personal TeX fonts" at
I just want to comment on this:
Perhaps one day the programs will be changed to look for a map file in
each texmf tree. Until then, we just have to make do.
Isn't there a much simpler alternative to using tlmgr? I've just done
cat $TEXMFMAIN/web2c/updmap.cfg \
updmap --cnffile updmap.cfg
and it seemed to work as desired. What is "tlmgr generate updmap" doing
that cat (or updmap itself) can't do?
