That was my fault, I was confused by the fact that pre_upgrade() and
post_upgrade() scripts are run by different processes, so they can't
share information.

These install scripts are giving headaches: I'll change it to simply
replace updmap.cfg by the concatenation of
/var/lib/texmf/arch/installedpkgs/texlive-*.maps and
/etc/texmf/web2c/updmap-local.cfg as recommended upstream.
