Install just completed. Some quick points:
- The XeTeX, XEplain and XeLaTeX formats can't be compiled (assuming
they've been checked in Expert mode at the Format Selection stage),
because of a missing unicode-letters.tex (at /usr/local/teTeX/share/
texmf.local/tex/generic/xetex/unicode-letters.tex in the teTeX setup).
- Files created during the install stage are put inside texmf.local.
In keeping with the new philosophy of making texmf.local the
repository of user additions only, and of introducing texmf.pkgs for
i-Installer-managed additions, I would have thought install files
(.fmt files etc.) belonged to this latter texmf.pkgs.
- A number of useful map files have vanished from the list of choices
offered by i-Installer. I'm thinking specifically of those in /usr/
local/TeXLive/texmf.texlive/fonts/map/dvips/tetex/ (for me, lucidabr-
o.map, lumath-o.map, mt-yy.map, mt-plus.map). Is this on purpose? Is
there a way to add these, without using updmap? As I understand it, i-
Installer creates the list it displays based on /usr/local/TeXLive/
- I'm perplexed by the content of psfonts.map at the end of the
installation process: no info inside it for Computer Modern or LaTeX
fonts. This seems to be caused by the absence in the distro of:
Are Latin Modern fonts supposed to be used in place of these?
There are teTeX replacements of those .map files:
However, they would overlap partly with:
Unrelated: installing the netpbm i-Package leaves a few files behind:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root admin 3422 Sep 27 21:12 /usr/local/netpbm.rtf
That's all for now!
