Hi all,

I found the cause of the problem:

This line in dvipdfm-x/tfm.c:

               kpse_find_file(tfm_name, kpse_ofm_format, 0)) != NULL) {

should be changed to

               kpse_find_file(ofm_name, kpse_ofm_format, 0)) != NULL) {

(taking care that ofm_name is initialized)

BTW, in dvips, ".ofm" is appended to font name before calling kpse_find_file()
with "kpse_ofm_format" (see dvips/tfmload.c:58):

    sprintf(name, "%s.ofm", n);
