Concerning those fonts, there are differences between distributions: 
different metrics, different subpaths, urw instances either or not 
present; i got the feeling that sometimes fixes/changes take place when 
a font contributer finds out that his/her system does not work thereby 
breaking other things); unfortunately much of those pieces of 
distributions are dictated by what latex wants to see instead of being 
generic

(one reason why i always generate metrics myself, although i found out 
that on the current tex live some of the files needed for that are not 
present of in different paths, so watch your logs -)
