It is in f9 proper but in a separate repository for f8.

I disagree. I understand that it is solved by providing the correct map,
but when there is only the dvipdfm map installed I think that things
should not break. And I don't understand what should be corrected. Is it
that dvipdfm map should not be shipped appart from pdftex maps, or is it
an issue in updmap? In any case it is not completely clear to me that 
it is fedora only issue. One should be able to install a subset of 
texlive-texmf and have everything functionning.

Yes, at that time I didn't understood the issue at all... Now I
understand better.

This is already reported in

But still this is not fedora specific in my opinion, the texlive tools
and bundling (maybe CTAN?) shouldn't leave such a situation happen.
I may be wrong, but in that case there could be some documentation
somewhere explaining the issue. Maybe it exists and I missed it.
