```Hi Ulrike,

In miktex there exist two "ttfonts.map".
Are there two ttfonts.map too?

No, there is only one (as I guess you found), in
texmf/fonts/map/ttf2pk/config/ttfonts.map.

Meanwhile I also saw that the ttfonts.map in fonts\map\ttf2pk is
from the zhmetrics package -

Yes.

and obviously it has no function apart
showing the entries needed for the "real" ttfonts.map

As far as I know, it is useful for people who want to make pk's from
the given Chinese fonts.

So shouldn't this map-file better be moved to the doc-folder

I removed it from the runtime, because I now see that those Chinese
fonts (simsun.ttc, simkai.ttf, and the like) don't exist in TL and they
appear to be nonfree, though I couldn't find anything really
