Thomas Esser has explained that pdfetex uses $TEXPSHEADERS (or maybe
$PSHEADERS) as the search path for map files. So I added
to TEXPSHEADERS in my texmf.cnf, and now everything works fine.
It seems a little strange that pdf(e)tex doesn't use TEXFONTMAPS. Maybe
it will in the future? Perhaps Hans can comment on that.
Thanks to all.
