I think you should just reproduce the structure from texmf.gwtex  
inside texmf-local, directory by directory. Namely:

/usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.gwtex/doc/fonts/gtamacfonts/ -> /usr/local/ 
/usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.gwtex/fonts/afm/gtamacfonts/ -> /usr/local/ 
/usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.gwtex/fonts/enc/dvips/gtamacfonts/ -> /usr/ 
/usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.gwtex/fonts/map/pdftex/gtamacfonts/ -> /usr/ 
/usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.gwtex/fonts/tfm/gtamacfonts/ -> /usr/local/ 
/usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.gwtex/fonts/truetype/gtamacfonts/ -> /usr/ 
/usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.gwtex/fonts/vf/gtamacfonts/ -> /usr/local/ 
/usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.gwtex/tex/context/gtamacfonts/ -> /usr/local/ 
/usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.gwtex/tex/latex/gtamacfonts/ -> /usr/local/ 

And then run mktexlsr (= texhash).

Actually, you don't need to worry about .map files: they are loaded  
on-the-fly by the LaTeX packages, which start with:


This was actually written in texlive.configure:

> $foundgtamacfonts = 1;
> print "### ${PROGNAME}: Disabling gtamacfonts.map (map is loaded by  
> sty files)\n";
> pkgsystem( "${updmapcmd} " . '--nohash --nomkmap --disable  
> gtamacfonts.map >/dev/null 2>&1 </dev/null');
> $dorunupdmap = 1;

But given my (non-existent) knowledge of Perl, I hadn't paid enough  
attention. (And I didn't even know TeX input files such as  
gtamacbaskerville.sty could load .map files in pdfTeX thanks to  

Hope this works this time,
