Hi Staszek,

since I have done most (all?) of the changes that you quote, I'll tell
you why I made each of these changes.

Yes. I wrote earlier about it: when writing output, dvips searches along
TEXPSHEADERS for each included file. Until this is split up in the code
(enc, type1, prologues), TEXPSHEADERS has to catch all of them. Not nice,
but not so easy to change. Tom? Tomas?

Yes, we need to find a solution for that mismatch.

I have done a test with a recent version of pdftex and it has looked
along TEXINPUTS for included figures.

pfb is wrong, type1 is right (TDS). hbf? I could not find anything like
this in our tree, so I have removed it from the path.

ttf is wrong, truetype is right (TDS).

TEXCONFIG is no longer used for map/enc.

That just has looked wrong to me. If anybody knows a reason why
INDEXSTYLE should search tex//, please stand up.

Right, because the automatic default for <progname>INPUTS is

And, we use the new paths for map/enc.
