I already saw several replies on problem with installation of 2012
packages but I didn't face any problem on my side. This may be because I
fixed earlier the problem with updmap.cfg (/etc/texmf/web2c/updmap.cfg)
or may be because I have separately installed TL 2012.

Small note: I suggest to add that line
in .install file for any texlive package.
