that's a map entry for dvipdfmx, it's incompatible format to the map
files required by pdftex, dvips, and ps2pk! This map entry should never
have gone into pdftex.map or psfonts.map.

e. g. that's a perfect map line for pdftex or dvips.

above are right for dvipdfmx.

above ar right for pdftex and dvips.

right for dvipdfm.

wrong for dvips. Dvipdfmx has a separated, own format.

all these are wrong, they can't be handled by pdftex or dvips.

these are right for dvipdfm(x). I would remove anything below map/ and
copy fresh stuff over from a decent TeX Live installation into the right
places, and then look how it behaves. Btw, the tools updmap-sys,
texhash, texconfig-sys and so on belong to your installation. Try
"which". Is it what you expect?
