i upgraded from 2003 to 2005, but unfortunately found that the CJK
processing no longer works.

when i run dvdipdfm on a CJK dvi file as usual,

$ dvipdfm wudi-res-zh.dvi

got the following error:

wudi-res-zh.dvi -> wudi-res-zh.pdf
[1kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+57/600 --dpi
657 gbkkaisl42
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for gbkkaisl42.
kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.

** WARNING ** Could not locate a virtual/physical font for TFM "gbkkaisl42".
** WARNING ** >> There are no valid font mapping entry for this font.
** WARNING ** >> Font file name "gbkkaisl42" was assumed but failed to
locate that font.
** ERROR ** Cannot proceed without .vf or "physical" font for PDF output...

Output file removed.

i do have a gbkkaisl42.tfm and kpsewhich can locate it, and i also
have gbkkai.afm and gbkkai.pfb.

it seems the ttf2pk can not find a font map file or the map file is
not correct. what map file it need and where should i put it?  can
anyone show me a clue to check?



then sun rose thinly from the sea and the old man could see the other
boats, low on the water and well in toward the shore, spread out
across the current.
