at the day that the tex collection dvd was burned, karl and i found out 
that the cm* files were gone from tex live (they used to be part of the 
lm distribution); the problem with those cm encoding files is that they 
are needed for lm because lm has a non-tex glyph ordering internally

if you look back in time, you will see that sometimes cm*.enc files 
are/were needed by dvi postprocessors; in tex live (tetex) there are cm 
encoding files, but they have funny names (numbered and digits) and are 
probably not meant for usage/users

the latest context refers to the lm-rep files now (let's hope that they 
stay); context provides a few more lm goodies so we need our own extra 
map files

sorry for the mess, but it's related to changes in the filenames of lm 
map/enc files, something i was not happy with but had no influence on; 
in cany case: one needs a recent/matching lm/context  to get it working 
since there is no way for tex to find out what files are on your system

btw, Karl Berry will put the cm files in the tex live repository (and 
ctan) so that we can be sure that we have a proper enc set to go with 
the cm fonts
