[tex-live] Missing map file?

We just had a problem report with using the pdfslide package on the  
mactex-support list. After getting sample files it turned out that the  
problem was that the contnav, compact navigation keys, font, which is  
included in TeX Live 2008, doesn't have a separate map file and is  
therefore not included in the map files used by pdftex. (The  
documentation for the pdfslide package says that a map line should be  
added to the hoekwater.map file but that doesn't seem to exist in TeX  
Live 2008.)

Attached is a one line map file for that font. Since the file is being  
compiled via pdflatex I've given the person a copy of the map file and  
a ``jury-rigged'' pdfslide package that adds \pdfmapfile{+contnav.map}  
when the [contnav] option to the package is given. I also included  
instructions of placement in the personal texmf tree.

I'm not at all sure this is the best way to do this or whether this is  
something that needs fixing in TeX Live.
