Run the following two commands and post the output:

find /usr/local/share/texmf/fonts/ -type f | while read FILE; do BASENAME="${FILE##*/}"; echo "checking $BASENAME: $(kpsewhich $BASENAME)"; done

find /usr/local/share/texmf/fonts/ -name \*.map | while read FILE; do grep "${FILE##*/}" /var/lib/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg; done

(I tested this in bash; I have no idea if it will work in other shells.)
