Sorry, missed your idea. Sounds good. I would call that dir
/var/lib/texmf/web2c/dvips. So it will be removed during purge.
My call for removing generated files in /etc/texmf/dvips during purge
would now look:
for i in /etc/texmf/dvips/*.map; do test -h $i && rm $i; done
assuming, there are no other soft links in /etc/texmf/dvips. Hope
this is correct.
