Hmm, line 297 is a comment here on my computer .. I assume it is the line

	if ($f =~ m!($TEXMFHOME|$TEXMFCONFIG)/web2c/updmap.cfg!) {

but how do you end up with such a path in TEXMFHOME or TEXMFCONFIG? But I
will adapt it to 
	if ($f =~ m!(\Q$TEXMFHOME\E|\Q$TEXMFCONFIG\E)/web2c/updmap.cfg!) {

if this works, I first have to test it. Of course in many places
not only this line.

Best wishes
