I am still working on learning how to install adobe postscript fonts
under texlive 2008.
First, I am trying to find out where pdftex.cfg sits (or is supposed
to sit). I cannot find it in my texlive tree.
Second, may I ask why there are multiple updmap.cfg files in the
texlive 2008 distro? I see three:
texmf-config/web2c/, texmf/web2c/ and texmf-var/web2c/
Related updmap Questions: would it not make sense to never have to
write into these files (or enable them), but to have an equivalent
texmf-local file that should be consulted? Preferably, this would be
an empty file, so one would know what file one should change.
