No, that's not the trick! That's a work-around for your fault! You  
should not give absolute path names as arguments (they are classified  
as EVIL, pointer to a TeX or PostScript or Javascript virus). The  
auxiliary files support a TeX programme and so they have  
automagically a home assigned to. If you put them there then they'll  
be found by TeX.

Now we have the last problem named! (It's strange that Mail knows in  
advance what I'll be writing and chooses the signature accordingly.)  
When you have the MAP file fragments for both fonts (chunks) saved in  
your private repository you need to run updmap for this stuff. If you  
are a bit hungry it might be worth to set up a batch of updmap  
commands and then have dinner, go to swim, or do some cross country  
running (ozone level is OK):

	updmap --syncwithtrees
	updmap --disable THIS.map
	updmap --disable THAT.map
	updmap --listavailablemaps
	updmap --enable THIS.map
	updmap --enable THAT.map

After sports and an hour TeX will work! (I'm now off for sports!)
