they never were part of the LaTeX distribution

you dont need to. the current PSNFSS setup has metrics which should be
identical. the names of the fonts in the dvips .map file are
irrelevant, what matters is the names used in the .tex and .dvi
file. you probably use "ptmr0" or "ptmr". these are supported vi
virtual fonts these days.

if you use rptmr directly in your .tex file, god help you. you have
some work ahead. but it is nothing to do with latex2e vs 209 (unless i
misunderstand the question)

of course they do, look back at the top level for obsolete
