and also, actually which pdftex.map has been read in? From which
directory? I would first locate _any_and_all_ pdftex.map files in the
overall BSD system (there might be several). Then, in which of these
appears a map line that starts e. g. with lcbm2488? How does the rest of
the line look like? Do you know why this line is in this pdftex.map? If
not, why not scrap the pdftex.map? In which directory is this
pdftex.map? Does this directory have any relationship to the ported TeX
tree? Questions... :-)
