I think there is one more parameter that is used to determine which  
set of fonts and naming convention is used: from the updmap.cfg file

# LW35
# Which fonts for the "Basic 35 Laserwriter Fonts" do you want to use  
# how are the filenames chosen? Valid settings:
#   URW:     URW fonts with "vendor" filenames (e.g. n019064l.pfb)
#   URWkb:   URW fonts with "berry" filenames (e.g. uhvbo8ac.pfb)
#   ADOBE:   Adobe fonts with "vendor" filenames (e.g. hvnbo___.pfb)
#   ADOBEkb: Adobe fonts with  "berry" filenames (e.g. phvbo8an.pfb)

I've been using the Adobe Type Basics with the vendor names (I'm too  
lazy and error prone to change them all to the berry naming scheme)  
but I think the default is URWkb.

Good Luck,
