Many thanks! (It even works with 5.86 :-)

That also led me to the portable/transparent solution:
changing ``<RelSymb.pfa'' to ``<<RelSymb.pfa''
in the psfonts.map fragment.

Even in retrospect, I still find it confusing that the dvips documentation
uses the phrase ``PostScript font'' where, to my current understanding,
it really only means ``Type 1 font''.

With the red book at hand, everybody can quickly write a PostScript font....

Many thanks again!

Best regards,
