indeed; the fastest method is:

cp texmfstart.rb  .../bin/texmfstart

or make a  stub that directly points to your copy of texmfstart

your texmf.cnf file should contain:

TEXFONTMAPS   = 
.;$TEXMF/fonts/map/{$progname,pdftex,dvips,}//;$TEXMF/{$progname,pdftex,dvips}/{config,}//

as long as we have no uniform map file syntax, progs needs to be able to 
find their own map files
