Thanks so much for this one.

I'm having a hard time figuring out how to use it, though.

This line in my source file:
 \special{x:fontmapfile +ec-base.map}

...gives an error message:
 *** fontmap e +ec-base.map not found; texmf.cnf may be broken

...and not only fails to load the extra maps in that file, but blows
away/suppresses/hinders entries in my psfonts.map that it found with the
exact same input file, but without the \special line.

I'm stymied.
