Not really IIRC. These two sets of map files are complementary. They  
define the two various brands of TeX metrics files for the PFB font  
files having retained their original Y&Y names:

- lucidabr.map (for the text fonts) and lumath.map (for the math  
fonts) set the correspondence between the metrics with Karl-Berry- 
style names and the PFB fonts with Y&Y names, for example:

     hlhr8r.tfm and lbr.pfb
     hlcrima.tfm and lbmo.pfb

- lucidabr-o.map (for the text fonts) and lumath-o.map (for the math  
fonts) set the correspondence between the metrics files with Y&Y  
names and the PFB fonts with the same names, for example:

     lbr.tfm and lbr.pfb
     lbmo.tfm and lbmo.pfb

These latter metrics do not appear directly in the directories /usr/ 
local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/fonts/tfm/bh/lu*/, they are defined in  
the file /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/aliases.

The metrics with Y&Y names are sometimes required for compatibility  
with older documents; they are also required if you are using the  
Lucida fonts in plain TeX based on the file lcdplain.tex, shipped by  
Y&Y on the original floppies and loading fonts through declarations  
such as:

     \font\tenrm=lbr at 9.5pt \font\sevenrm=lbr at 6.9pt  \font 
\fiverm=lbr at 5.2pt
     \font\teni=lbmo at 9.5pt \font\seveni=lbmo at 6.9pt  \font 
\fivei=lbmo at 5.2pt

I think the conflict arise not with lucidabr-o.map and lumath-o.map,  
but with lucidabr-k.map and lumath-k.map, which associate Karl-Berry- 
style metrics names with Karl-Berry-style PFB font file names, and  
are not compatible with lucidabr.map and lumath.map.
