Hi again Norbert,

I'm sorry, but I don't see how people who have manually created 
updmap.cfg are hurt by the existing code for _create_config_files with 
the "die" removed.  Doesn't the new map information simply get appended 
to what was already there?  I'm looking at the code starting at line 
2745 in TLUtils.pm (rev 40900).

I apologize in advance if I've missed something obvious.
