It seems that "dvips -P pdf" fails to properly generate PK fonts on
Windows, leaving characters blank (tested on TeX Live 2010 and also 2009).
No such problem on Linux. The reason is probably that mktexpk ignores
--dpi and uses just the MF mode, resulting in a font generated at 600dpi
instead of 8000dpi. I see that mktexpk is an EXE file on Windows...
