so the file is currnetly in the wrong spot;

now that we're discussing dvipdfmx ... do you know a way to use a dvipdfmx 
specific map path


i want pdftex as well as dvipdfmx to use his/her own map file;
since dvipdfmx does not set a progname (or for this purpose, a maybe a $driver 

since we have multiple axis

engine   -> pdfetex aleph xetex
progname -> plain, latex, context

we also need a variable

driver   -> dvips, pdftex, dvipdfm

so that we can have

TEXFONTMAPS = .;$TEXMF/{fonts/map/{$driver,dvips,}//

which then takes us to either the pdftex or dvipdfm subpath without potential
