Make sure that the font files mentioned in these MAP file fragments
are as well in texmf-local and ~/texmf/fonts! (Something that can't be
found cannot be used.) And since TLU runs in the end with elevated
privileges the tlmgr utility, tlmgr won't find stuff in your private
Private things stay private in TeX. You need to have your private
updated copy of the MAP files.
One option is to talk to Adam asking him to implement a post-
processing hook in TLU. In case TLU finds private MAP file fragments
it automatically refreshes the private MAP files. It can do this
easily because it has been launched with your ID/privileges.
