hello - this is a short version of some messages sent to comp.text.tex
I manage a cluster of computers with texlive 2005 installed; in
texmf-local there are several commercial fonts, in particular the
complete mathtime and lucida packages that are used by several users. I
installed texlive 2007 on the side, and changed TEXDIR and so on to use
it; immediately complaints came.
in short: you have erased mathtime.sty from TL07 but left there mt-yy.map
and mt-plus.map; you have erased the lucida map, tfm and vf files but left
the lucidabr.sty and other support files.
if you want to suppress mathtime/lucida support, please:
1) TELL. the "highlights of changes in the current release" page in the
texlive site says nothing.
2) ERASE ALL, and not half of the files.
1) files in texlive 2007 that should NOT be there. they are useful only
for mathtime/lucida. move them from the texlive tree to texmf-local.
2) files to be copied from the texlive 2005 tree into texmf-local in order
to deal with mathtime/lucida fonts
updmap-sys --disable belleek.map
updmap-sys --enable Map=mt-yy.map
updmap-sys --enable Map=mt-plus.map
updmap-sys --enable Map=lucidabr.map
updmap-sys --enable Map=lumath.map
PERSONAL NOTE (IMPORTANT)
the basic reason to have a texmf-local tree, is that you can upgrade the
basic system keeping the local additions. now, I cannot keep in two
parallel trees /usr/local/texlive/2005/ and /2007/ together with the same
texmf-local and switch between them changing the TEXDIR and siblings
environment variables; 2005 and 2007 require a different texmf-local. in
short, the same reason to have a texmf-local has been compromised by your
choice that I see as a VERY VERY BAD MOVE.
