[tex-live] dvipdfmx: pk vs. pfb

Hi Bob,

    on one system, dvipdfmx insists
    on generating a pk file for one of the fonts

Here's what comes to mind:

1) What is the system?

2) Is it the same version of dvipdfmx on both?  (d*x's reading of
psfonts.map is "only" a couple years old.)

3) Maybe there is a stray dvipdfm.map file somewhere on the problematic
system that is interfering?

4) Try setting the envvar KPATHSEA_DEBUG to -1 and/or running d*x under
strace to check if the intended psfonts.map is being read.

Hope this helps debug further ...
