This was necessary for teTeX 2 because it did not search for map and
enc files in HOMETEXMF. Might this really confuse teTeX 3.0 now? I
always installed the font files according to Walter's instructions
for teTeX 2. And now some work, some don't ...

Sorry, I don't know if this is the right one. How can I figure out
which one is the right one? There is another one in
/root/.texmf-var/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap/pdftex.map. It's quite
confusing for me. I was really happy to have all my fonts working
and I do not understand why it does not work anymore. To have
working fonts again (at least on one machine) I made a subtle
decision yesterday: I made a backup of my laptop (also running
Sarge) and installed Ubuntu Hoary. Now I'm going to install teTeX
3.0 by hand and then I will install all of my fonts there again. So
we still can use my desktop to find the cause for the problems and I
can compile my LaTeX files on my laptop (at the latest tonight, I
hope) ...
