If you comment the "offending" ones out with #! i-Installer will 
recognise that line as a disabled font, and display it as such in the 
UI. Some time ago the configuration files of teTeX were changed to make 
it easier to machine-parse them. Use that!

Selecting the directory in hte finder and giving an enter should work 
as well. Given the case preserving but case insensitive nature of the 
filing system, I would think that case doesn't matter in this case. So 
this .map file might very well collide with what you want to have.
