I tried again tonite to get these two fonts (Frutiger and AGaramond) to play
with my TeXLive install (Fedora10). The files referenced by Axel above are
not created. Though updmap runs without complaints, I can't see that a
corresponding entry is created in any of the different pdfonts files.

Any suggestions as to what I may do to get these fonts to work with my
TeXLive2007. (I've used them successfully prior to Te2007). Is is an option
to re-install TeX??
