Andreas's suggestion seems to work.  My thanks somehow failed to be  
cc-ed to the list.  But thank you both.

As a recent switcher (from linux) I'm happy on the command line, but  
if there is a recommended way to do the mapping inside a gwtex  
distribution, I'm afraid I don't know it either.

If I understand it correctly, Andreas's solution skips the lucida- 
complete bundled map file in favour of gwtex/tetex's built in lucida  
maps.  I assume this choice makes no practical difference?
