AFAIK that ought to work (but someone please try - I don't have
TeXLive available at the moment), given that the following
conditions hould:

- the encodings used need to be listed in the xdvi.cfg file as well

- the .enc files should contain only simple encoding vectors,
  no advanced Postscript stuff (most .enc files seem to satisfy
  this - but I think you're the expert on this ;). Xdvi will
  exit(1) if the t1lib function used to parse the encoding
  file fails (it ought to fall back on PK, but this can't be fixed
  right now).

- the .map files should contain references to .pfbs, i.e. all lines
  should end with something like:
  (but it's not fatal if some lines don't, it will fall back on
  a PK version of that font in this case)
