I am told that the dvipdfm map files will be part of the next
releases of the font sets, but that would be too late for texlive,
and that is why I added the files to context provisionally.
gwTeX probably should use the files in some way.

I do not know much more about that file than you do. I did not
create the map file, I only converted the actual fonts.

These fonts are used by the latex package mflogo, Context does
not use them. The map entries are inside dvips/mflogo/mflogo.map.

These fonts are used by the latex package stmaryrd, Context does
not use them. The map entries are inside dvips/stmaryrd/stmaryrd.map
