Linux. Arch Linux 0.7, with teTeX 2.02, to be exact. I did mention that
in my original message, but it was near the bottom.

Yes. The files are world-readable. That should work, shouldn't it?
BTW, I've tried installing the map files in a couple of different
locations. At first I installed them (logged into my normal user
account) under /usr/local/share/texmf. Since I have had problems in the
past with pdftex not finding resources in $TEXMFLOCAL, I moved the whole
ConTeXt installation (including the problem map files) under
/usr/share/texmf. Identical errors either way.
Thanks for the suggestions.
