Actually, updmap is not good for my purposes because I'm using  
dynamically generated map files whose content changes frequently,  
depending on what I'm doing at the moment.  In the past it's been  
easiest just to get dvips to read .dvipsrc to load the map file  
directly, rather than the possibly outdated list provided by the last  
invocation of updmap.

So if there is some documentation about the recent changes to dvips,  
I'd be grateful to a pointer to that.
