Thanks for the info, but given that there's not much dvips can do
about this (in general, unless we tie in GhostScript-specific
knowledge), I'm tempted to forward all of this to L. Peter Deutsch
and let him resolve it.

Unless someone thinks there is something dvips should do differently.

Realize there are two problems here.  The first is the GhostScript
problem, where overriding Nimbus kills Times-Roman (which it
shouldn't).  The second is that that map file is broken, in any
case, since the PostScript name is not provided correctly in it,
so dvips thinks the *PostScript* name is ptmro or whatever.  So
whoever built that map file should take another look at it.
