Probably Karl or someone removed dvipdfm(x) special
map files because dvipdfmx understands map files of
dvips format. Most people can remove the line
f cid-x.map
from dvipdfmx.cfg to avoid the warning.

In the case of ptex and eptex, however, the map file
cid-x.map is inevitably necessary.
Therefore it must be in

Karl, please recover
