Since you're opening the topic: are dvipdfm/context/lm-math.map (and
other dvipdfm map files) already part of gwTeX? Because other users
have problems using XeTeX without those files. These map files are not
part of fonts packages themselves (yet?), but as far as I understood
they were added by Taco to make the Polish fonts usable for XeTeX
under TeXLive. (Using those old fonts under XeTeX doesn't make much
sense anyway - ConTeXt will hopefully replace the definitions soon,
but for math there is really no alternative yet.)

I guess that it was renamed into antt-ec.map now, the latex package
was written by the authors (so for LaTeX there should be no problem)
and ConTeXt package knows about the new map file.

Same pattern for all of them:

All those files are currently missing in gwTeX. (Font files are
present, but map files have wrong names - I actually tried to compile
an example and the font is indeed "broken". But I usually need to
incude another TeX tree anyway, since gwTeX is missing some fonts such
as Iwona, so I didn't notice that Antykwa was actually present but

They seem to be in /fonts/map/dvips/cs (please check if all the fonts
are included there). ConTeXt doesn't use them.

/fonts/map/dvips/pl - same as above

Not sure, but /fonts/map/dvips/cm might have replaced them - please
check; ConTeXt doesn't use those

This entry in original-base.map replaced it:
    contnav ContextNavigation          <contnav.pfb
You may safely delete that file.

Taco might need to answer. Files replacing that one are part of
ConTeXt now - I don't know if/which LaTeX packages might need these

I don't know about them, perhaps
/Build/source/texk/windvi/texmf/lucida.map (but does gwTeX include any
files for supporting lucida?)

check /fonts/map/dvips/vntex
