As explained in the News Issue, we merely provide support for these
driver files, we do not distribute (all of) them.

IIRC, there is a dvipdfmx.def somewhere - I just know I've seen it -
so I decided to just add support for it straight away.

No that will not lead to any errors except if you actually use the
option without having it installed.
