- Yes, this is the copy that should be removed. The instructions from
PCTeX referring to texmf-local/dvips/ are outdated.
- No, updmap does not think that texmf-local/ is a subdirectory of
2007/, you missed the .. in 2007/../texmf-local which means: start
from 2007/, go up one level in the directory tree, then enter the
texmf-local/ directory. This has the advantage of placing texmf-
local/ relative to 2007/, instead of imposing an absolute path.
You'll notice for TeXLive-2007 /usr/local/texlive/2007/texmf/web2c/
where $SELFAUTOPARENT is defined I think by the location of the TeX
binary that is being run, while for gwTeX /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.cnf
TEXMFLOCAL = $SELFAUTOPARENT/texmf.local
