Hi again,

Many thanks to those who responded.

Yes, there is an error with dvipdfmx:

** WARNING ** This .map file looks like a dvips format fotmap file.
** WARNING ** -- Current input buffer is: HoeflerTextOrnaments hoeflertextornaments <hoeflertextornaments.enc
** WARNING ** -- Reading fontmap file stopped at: file="dvipdfm.map", line=6.

as a result if does not read the full dvipdfm.map file and it
therefore dies later when trying to mktexpk a font appearing later in
the .map file.

The offending line seems to be

HoeflerTextOrnaments <hoeflertextornaments.enc <HoeflerTextOrnaments.ttf



I don't know anything about the format of .map files, but this line seems
very different to the rest.

My understanding is that this 'dvipfdm' option is global and would be
passed on to any other package which understands it.  This has always
worked in the past for me.  Is this incorrect?

Thanks again,
