It seems there is no lucida/mathtime support on texlive at all,
only some spurious metrics from an extension attempt to psnfss,
but not the 'official' font package support, not even for LaTeX.

Meanwhile, I checked out cont-fnt.zip, but it does not have the
lbm* files either, only text font metrics are included.

Cheers, Taco
