Recently I encountered two users who have added map files to xdvi.cfg
directly.  I suggest to apply the patch below to all xdvi.cfg
instances in TeXLive (and probably to the main xdvi bundle also).

 % ps2pk has no "built-in" fonts, just like xdvik, so its map file is used

+% Normally, it isn't necessary to add any other map file here because
+% ps2pk.map is a generated file (by the updmap script) in most cases.
+% Instead, map files should be added to the updmap.cfg file.
