[tex-live] packaging

    Not in tex/, but they are in fonts/. So you will end up with
    multiple [.enc] copies/versions to potentially confuse dvips/pdftex
    etc. Won't that create problems?

Sorry, I missed the .enc's.

Yes, you're right, duplicated .enc's are a problem.  For that case, I
think by far the best approach is for each .enc to have its own unique
name (even if the contents are 100% identical).  As in, xxx-ts1.enc for
font package xxx, yyy-ts1.enc for font package yyy, etc.

Experience has shown that trying to share .enc files between packages
leads to far more trouble than it could ever help.
