Which output file?

root@lotus:~# update-updmap -c /home/chris/.texmf-config/
root@lotus:~# updmap
updmap: This is updmap, version 1107552857
updmap: using transcript file `/root/.texmf-var/web2c/updmap.log'
!!! ERROR! The map file `MinionPro.map' has not been found at all.

The same with '-c /home/chris/.texmf-var/fonts/map/'. Sorry, I don't
know what to do.

I think it would be a good idea to inform the user about this
options if updmap (or installation) fails because of the above. Or
much better: can't it be automated? It's not that unusual to have
own fonts and related files in $TEXMFHOME.
