thank you, after using dvipdfmx and did a lot of configuraion works, it works!

but  pdflatex and xdvi still have problems. it seemed both of them
caused kpathse to invoke mktexpk to create bit map fonts due to some
fonts can not be found,  such as

warning: gbksong42 at 720 can not be found
kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode  / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+120/600 --dip
720 gbksong42

i can find many gbksong42 in my system, so i can not understand what
fonts  were really missed and why mktexpk failed.

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.
