Yes, I'm doing it with my on script. But I thought maybe someone will 
need it too.

I work with several distribution, some of them a very old. So, I have 
lots of map files with the same tfm fonts, but different pfb (as I said 
If I need to use fonts from several distributions, I need one 
psfonts/pdftex.map, or I can rename these files to
psfonts.texlive1, psfonts.texlive2,.... and load them with \pdfmapfile 
or in config.ps.

So, main problems are:
1) If I load them with \pdfmapfile (pushed it in pdflatex.fmt), I get 
lots of warnings about duplicated fonts (but result is good)
2) The loaded font's order is necessary, because I need to variants:
a) "psfonts_old_texlive.map" + "psfonts_new_texlive.map"
b) "psfonts_new_texlive.map" + "psfonts_old_texlive.map"

I could get a proper psfonts.map from such a updmap.cfg (if it do not do 
the sorting):
Map psfonts_old_texlive.map
Map a.map
Map x.map

I hope you understood what I meant :)
