mtex, mtsy and rmtmi are the MathTime 1.1 fonts (math fonts to  
accompany the Times font). The fonts are commercial, and were sold by  
Y&Y <http://www.tug.org/yandy/> (on Windows) and Blue Sky Research  
<http://www.bluesky.com/products/mathtime.html> (on Mac). Hence the  
map file mt-yy.

Then a free clone, called Belleek, was done by True TeX <http:// 
www.truetex.com/>. Hence the map file mt-belleek.

The MathTime Plus fonts were a commercial set of complementary fonts  
(small caps, math bold italic, etc.) released later. They are now  
sold, I think, by PCTeX <http://www.pctex.com/ 
additional.html#mathtime>. Hence the map file mt-plus.

So yes, you cannot have the two maps mt-yy and mt-belleek activated  
together: it's either one, or the other. If you don't own the  
MathTime fonts (1.1 or Plus), then you don't need mt-yy and mt-plus;  
if you own them, then you don't need mt-belleek.
