You're right, of course. I should have thought of that. The  
difference between lm.map from TeXLive-2007 and lm.map from gwTeX (as  
revealed by FileMerge) turns out to be exactly the content of lm- 

Thus, running:

	sudo -H updmap-sys --enable Map lm-math.map

should solve your problem.

Actually, the version of Latin Modern in gwTeX seems a mixture of  
recent (v 1.01, 16.01/2007) and older (v 1.00, 13/04/2006), while  
TeXLive contains the recent version fully. For example, the Latin  
Modern doc in gwTeX belongs to the older version, while the PFBs  
belong to the newer version. Looking at lm-hist.txt in TeXLive, we see:

Ver. 1.010, 16.01.2007:
* LaTeX support fixed and enhanced with LM math (thanks to Marcin
* math text metric files (rm-*.tfm) provided

Regarding the MAP files, the ones in gwTeX are dated 21/01/2007 while  
those in TeXLive are dated 22/01/2007. An update of LM has indeed  
taken place in between, but its shouldn't affect the MAP files given  
the only change should be, according again to lm-hist.txt:

22.01.2007: no version change
* Lithuanian *.fd files corrected (reported by Sigitas Tolusis): L7X - 
 > L7x
