I use a standard install from RH7.2 and recently updated the tetex rpms (finally they 
are shipping pdftex 14h).  I for one, have had good experiences with RH rpms and 
pdflatex (formerly after hand-installing current pdflatex's). But now I get this warning 
using the new RH7.2 rpms for pdflatex:

Warning: pdflatex (file /usr/share/texmf/dvips/config/pdftex.map): invalid entr
y for `rtxphvbo': SlantFont/ExtendFont can be used only with embedded T1 fonts

this is repeated for rtxphvro, rtxptmbo, rtxptmro

Here is the pdftex.map entry.
rtxphvbo Helvetica-Bold ".167 SlantFont TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <tx8r.enc

I'm unfamiliar with the rtx fonts; is the warning indicating a bad pdftex.map file or an 
incompatible font, or something else?
