Thanks for your helpful comments

I first did sudo updmap --enable Map iffonts.map, but nothing got  
updated. Then I tried sudo updmap --enable Map ./ifmath.map in the  
directory where the map file resides and, heureka, the missing files  
were generated. Does one of the unix gurus know why I need ./filename  
instead of just filename ? Here the log:

Files generated:

Unfortunately I still don't see any output, but I have to postpone  
closer inspection until some later time.
