Well, we are talking about the fonts required by the psnfss (latex)
system. Those should be all the same for all systems. The files typset
should be completely portable. Maybe the outcome doesn't look right,
but I doubt it will. I'd like to hear about any problems with psnfss
not being compatible among distributions. 

And the argument about being too LaTeXy: the encoding of these files
is not LaTeX specific (besides from the fact that LaTeX can only
handle T1/OT1 encoding right), so what is not generic about them?
