-Ppdf asks to load a config file that just modifies some font maps.
The purpose is to embed all fonts (including the URW replacements for
the standard fonts). Using updmap(-sys) this behaviour could be set as
default so that the swich becomes unnecessary. Anyway, if dvips could
not find a config file, it would complain.
