[tex-live] dvipdfmx: pk vs. pfb

I've found that if I create a map file in the format expected by
dvipdfmx and use the -f option, pfbs are used rather than pks. Why
the same dvipdfmx on different systems can read the same psfonts.map
lines and react differently is still a mystery.

Here is an apparently problematical psfonts.map line:

t1-stixgeneral STIXGeneral-Regular " stixt1 ReEncodeFont " <stix-t1.enc <STIXGeneral-Regular.pfb

whereas the following works in a dvipdfm map file:

t1-stixgeneral stix-t1  STIXGeneral-Regular.pfb
