In all of this, how did you handle fonts, etc., that you installed in  
texmf.local? Also, will updates to TeXLive destroy texmf.local (texmf- 
local?) so I should save it. I'm not looking forward to having to  
edit updmap.cfg by hand or running updmap-sys over and over (I seem  
to remember that there was a bug and it can't add more than one map  
at a time).

Good Luck,
