Good - just to make sure: Is this the ps2pk.map on the CD image,
or is it created in the `local' user directories
(/usr/TeX/texmf-var/dvips/config seems to be the default) when
the user selects `R' (run from CD-ROM) in install-cd.sh? It
seems that in my case the problem was also that no appropriate
local files had been installed by that step:

$ pwd
$ ls -lR dvips/ xdvi/
total 4
drwxrwxrwx    2 root     root         4096 May 24 15:24 config/

total 4
-rw-rw-rw-    1 root     root         3423 May 25 14:25 config.ps
