That's pretty much the same route I took when I install in
/usr/local/share/texmf, but I ended up doing things by hand instead of
hacking the pre/postflight scripts.

For maths fonts, I have found that Thierry Bouche's article in MAPS
<http://www.ntg.nl/maps/pdf/21_18.pdf> gives most of the information
I need to change math fonts in TeX. At least, I have managed to make
myself MathGalliad to go with Carter and Cone's Galliard -- just
beautiful. It was a hairy, iterative, nevetheless a fun, process.
