Probably no, I haven't tested it, but I guess no, because I do not know
how the map installation stuff works in tetex-2.0 for debian.

Hmmm. Pity.

The problem I saw, but please correct me, is that with this version
where the actual pfb fonts are created at install time from this special
file, is that the created fonts are *not* under debians dpkg control. So
other packages can overwrite, delete, remove whatever do with them.
Also, we could probably overwrite files installed by other packages (if
they install the files with same names in the same directory).

I pondered keeping this pfb2t1c stuff, but decided for now that it is
not a good idea.

If you can give me other good reasons why we should keep it, I will do
it, no problem, quick done.

Best wishes
