I played around with your suggestions and I am nearly there.

# 1.)
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/boletines/2008/1(.*)

# 2.)
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/${portadaboja:boletin}

One is working fine but it is hardcoded (I did it to test). The 2) is
not working because it seems that ${portadaboja:boletin} is not resolved
if used on the "right" site.

To overcome that problem I took your suggestion and combined it like:
RewriteCond ${portadaboja:boletin}      ^(.+)$
RewriteCond  %{REQUEST_URI} /%1

but that is never got hit.

What I actually trying is to compare the REQUEST_URI with the map entry.
Is this possible and I am just not using it the right way?
