Some font issues (in Expert mode):

- The following map files are not enabled by default:

manfnt.map (missing)
mflogo.map (missing)
stmaryrd.map (missing)

Regarding the last four, they correspond in teTeX to /usr/local/teTeX/ 

- Some map files in the following directories, taken verbatim from  
teTeX, are partly redundant with those from the original TeXLive:


Some examples of redundancy:




I don't know which other directories have been copied verbatim from  
teTeX (lucida?). I'm not sure it would be good to suppress them  
either: for example, /usr/local/TeXLive/texmf.texlive/fonts/map/dvips/ 
tetex/ contains lucidabr-o.map and lumath-o.map I absolutely need for  
my Lucida font setup.

- Regarding mathtime, the tfm files are indeed present in /usr/local/ 
TeXLive/texmf.texlive/fonts/tfm/yandy/mathtime/, but the vf file  
mtmi.vf is missing. In teTeX it was:


Some other things:

- I'm surprised by the existence of:


Is it standard practice to include them in TeXLive?

- During the Language selection stage (in Expert mode), the comments  
in the dialog box mention English and British, while the hyphenation  
files are called usenglish and ukenglish. Some users might be  
confused by this.

That's it, I've not attempted to perform any exhaustive and  
systematic check of the content of the font-support files in TeXLive;  
the above are just things I noticed randomly. For the rest of this  
week and most of next week I need to get going, and will probably  
switch back to teTeX until I get a few things done.
