Locate the file, put it in the same directory as allrunes.map (given  
that you do not have a complicated directory structure where you  
separate all the elderly scripts), run 'sudo -H texhash,' and maybe  
another 'sudo -H updmap-sys --syncwithtrees' to clean all unavailable  
MAP files from updmap's configuration file. Then try to enable it ...

On runes, that do not scale: have you tried Unicode encoded TrueType  
fonts, like Cardo, Junicode, LeedsUni, Code2000, Caslon? In XeTeX  
they should easily be accessible, for (simple) TeX and LaTeX it would  
be necessary to dump the Runic part of the fonts into a PostScript  
font each, create an encoding file -- and voilà: luxury!
