Besides a possible problem with picking up the wrong marvosym.map  
file (actually, it looks as though the right one was picked up since  
kpsewhich seems to pick things up alphabetically and `marvosym' comes  
before `misc' --- but I still think it is ``dangerous'').

What I can't find is the umvs.tfm file for the marvosym font. I've  
downloaded and installed the marvosym package from CTAN into  
texmf.pkgs and all seems to work ok now.

Good Luck,
