Tlmgr is meant to manage the system's TeX Live installation, it is  
not meant to manage some user's fonts. You'll have to follow Herb's  

My recommendation is to write a shell script with a dozen or such  
lines à la

	updmap -enable Map <map file fragment 1>.map
	updmap -enable Map <map file fragment 2>.map

Launch it before you go to bed and next morning save it that you can  
use it again when you install the next TeX Live distribution!
