[tex-live] texmf and updmap

I'm wondering which texmf tree I should use.
The most up-to-date one is Build/source/inst/texmf
That's created by the make install in the Build script. It's not part
of the repository. Build/source/inst is essentially just a staging
If I use Master/texmf instead of Build/source/inst/texmf it's very
likely that I miss other things which are generated by the build
Everything needed to run should be in Master/texmf, because that is what
eventually gets distributed. Unfortunately the process of updating (or
even checking) Master/texmf from the make install to inst/texmf is not
automated. I would very much welcome help (scripts, volunteers, ...) in
this regard :).
Or should I put both directories into TEXMFMAIN?
It shouldn't be necessary to change TEXMFMAIN (or anything else) from
the version in the repo.
but proto10.map doesn't exist. Are the archaic fonts incomplete?
I updated from a new release of archaic, and Peter provides an "all in
one" map file now. I haven't done the rebuild which updates updmap.cfg
(not to mention psfonts.map, pdftex.map, etc.) yet. Another thing I'd
be glad to have help with. I've written some scripts, but I don't trust
them enough to automate the entire thing at this point.
