Mea culpa. This was likely the result of my suggesting in an earlier
bug report that updmap-sys --syncwithtrees should be used "when texlive
is installed". I never got round to testing the updates until I noticed
a user question at stackexchange.
P.S. "the Fedora guys" is essentially one guy who has taken on
the monumental task of packaging all of texlive to replace the
texlive-2007 which Fedora and RHEL users had available earlier.
