[tex-live] Pscryrliic Fonts for TeXLive

I am testing the pscyr package for OpenBSD against TeXLive and have
encountered a problem.

The port installs the files in this list:

However I have patched the Makefile to install into "texmf" instead of
"texmf-local". I assume this should not introduce problems.

The port will then execute:
updmap-sys --quiet --nomkmap --enable Map=pscyr.map
updmap-sys --quiet --enable Map=pscyr2.map

I verify that the new files are indexed:
root at skutter:texmf> kpsewhich pscyr.sty

And in theory I should be able to test the font using this laTeX file:
this is a test

This should work, as pscyr.sty does this:

Here is the output of the command `pdflatex test`:

It appears to know that the font needs to be built, but is incorrectly
try to locate a map (which is not applicable for Type1 fonts?).

I am stuck at this point. Does anyone have an insight as to why this
may not be working?

Best Regards
