OK, here's the fix:
1) Install cygport-0.10.8.1-1 (released just moments ago).
2) Bump collection-basic to $today and build it with newly-downloaded
3) Bump collection-langcjk to $today, add 'jfontmaps' to ARCH_PKGS, and
build with newly-downloaded sources.
After installing the new collection-basic with the new postinstall
script, the aforementioned xetex test works.
In your new postinstall script, I wonder if it would be better to delete
/etc/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg rather than editing it. The reason is that
the master updmap.cfg in /usr/share/texmf/web2c may have changed due to
the addition or deletion of TL packages containing fonts, and I don't
think these changes get propagated to /etc/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg.
The problem with that is any settings in TEXMFSYSCONFIG/web2c/updmap.cfg
would be lost. What about the attached patch for cygport?
I won't have a chance to test it until tomorrow, but it looks good at
first glance. One question: I don't see where you take account of fonts
that might have been deleted. Shouldn't updmap-sys --syncwithtrees be
run on every postinstall to catch these?
I think it would be enough for texlive-collection-basic to have a custom
postinsall.sh that does this. There's no reason it has to be repeated
by every texlive-collection-* package.
