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 -)
