Hi Morten (and all),

Back on the email from last September about graphics drivers ...

    The one [dvipdfm.def] you have is this one, right?
             [1999/9/6 vx.x Driver-dependant file]

Yes.  Just leaving that as-is in TL.

    I have asked Cho.

Before I write ... do you recall any reply?

Well, that is newer than the version that was in TeX Live, and it seems
there is no permission to distribute (let alone modify) it, and
unnecessary to do so anyway since anyone who wants it will have to get
vtex itself from somewhere else, and hence will have their preferred
file.  So I removed vtex.def from TL.
