> 2. Different map files are installed for pdftex and dvips.

If one prepares a map file foo.map for dvips like:
tfmname Psname  <foo.t42  <8r.enc
... ...

Thomas will rewrite updmap as follows:
the command
updmap --enable Map=foo.map
adds foo.map to updmap.cfg and automatically creates entries
tfmname Psname  <foo.t42  <8r.enc
in psfonts.map,
tfmname Psname  <foo.ttf  <8r.enc
in pdftex.map and
tfmname 8r foo.ttf
in dvipdfm.map

Then, by defining TEXPSHEADERS in texmf.cnf as
TEXPSHEADERS = .;$TEXMF/{dvips,fonts/{enc,type1,type42,type3}}//

all of dvips, pdftex, dvipdfm and dvipdfmx will work properly.
