referencing "[tex-live] updamp-sys problem" from June 2011:

I had the same/a similar problem and noticed something and found a fix:

I noticed that the files that updmap is missing are not in the right
location (although installed via tlmgr).

==> C:\texlive>mktexlsr

mktexlsr: Done.

ERROR:  The following map file(s) couldn't be found:
       allrunes.map yrd.map

       Did you run mktexlsr?

       You can delete non-existent map entries using the option

C:\texlive\2011\bin\win32\runscript.tlu:575: command failed with exit code 1:
perl.exe c:/texlive/2011/texmf/scripts/tetex/updmap.pl --enable Map allrunes.map

==> C:\texlive>dir /s /b allrunes.map

My solution: I manually moved/merged the files from the texlive/2011/*
directory to/into the texlive/2011/texmf-dist/* directory, did a
mktexlsr, a tlmgr generate updmap and a updmap-sys.

Maybe this helps someone.
Can someone point me in the direction where to set the paths for tlmgr
aka the configuration file for tlmgr. I can't find it at the locations
stated in [1].
