[lucida] Installation problem on MacTeX 2007

Aloha all,

The lucida-complete distribution unpacks lucida.map in /fonts/map/dvips/

updmap-sys --enable lucida.map doesn't get found there, following the  
installation instructions that come with the distribution.

I looked in /fonts/map/dvips/ and found that the fonts installed by  
getnonfreefonts all had subdirectories where they kept the map files.

I made a subdirectory, lucida, and moved lucida.map there.

updmap-sys --enable lucida.map didn't feel it needed to update  
anything, so I had to run updmap-sys without the --enable switch.   
This found the map file and all is well.

I ran texhash a couple of times.  Once after the original installation  
and again after I moved lucida.map.  I don't know if updmap-sys  
depends on the texlsr database, but the successful run of updmap-sys  
followed a call to texhash.

It looks to me as if the tex directory structure has changed since the  
lucida-complete distribution was put together, and that it needs to be  
changed to work correctly on a Macintosh.

All the best,
