Doing the above, with dvipdfmx from current MacTeX namely

	-rwxr-xr-x  1 bvoisin  staff   708092 23 jan  2007 dvipdfmx

I get, before creating the file cid-x.map

	$ dvipdfmx nfssfont
	nfssfont.dvi -> nfssfont.pdf
	[1]
	36527 bytes written

and after

	$ dvipdfmx nfssfont
	nfssfont.dvi -> nfssfont.pdf
	[1
	** WARNING ** Found file "./Palatino" for PFB font but it doesn't  
look like a PFB...
	** WARNING ** Found file "./Palatino" for TrueType font but it  
doesn't look like a TrueType...
	kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 --dpi  
600 Palatino
	mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for Palatino.
	kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.
	** WARNING ** Could not locate a virtual/physical font for TFM  
"pplr8r".
	** WARNING ** >> This font is mapped to a physical font "Palatino".
	** WARNING ** >> Please check if kpathsea library can find this font:  
Palatino
	** ERROR ** Cannot proceed without .vf or "physical" font for PDF  
output...

	Output file removed.

After downloading the CVS version you mention, setting the executable  
bit of the download and putting it inside /usr/texbin

	$ chmod a+x ~/Downloads/dvipdfmx-20080515-i386-darwin
	$ sudo cp ~/Downloads/dvipdfmx-20080515-i386-darwin /usr/texbin/ 
dvipdfmx

so as to get

	-rwxr-xr-x@ 1 root     wheel   904744 15 mai 09:59 dvipdfmx

here's what I obtain with nfssfont.dvi, without cid-x.map in the  
current directory

	$ dvipdfmx nfssfont
	nfssfont.dvi -> nfssfont.pdf

	** WARNING ** Failed to load AGL file "pdfglyphlist.txt"...
	[1]
	36752 bytes written

and with cid-x.map in the current directory

	$ dvipdfmx nfssfont
	nfssfont.dvi -> nfssfont.pdf

	** WARNING ** Failed to load AGL file "pdfglyphlist.txt"...
	[1]
	63268 bytes written

Attached are the 3 PDF files so produced:

- nfssfont-old.pdf produced by dvipfmx from MacTeX, without cid-x.map

- nfssfont-new-wo-cidmap.pdf produced by dvipdfmx from CVS, without  
cid-x.map

- nfssfont-new-w-cidmap.pdf produced by dvipdfmx from CVS, with cid- 
x.map

All three files display correctly in Adobe Acrobat. First two display  
correctly in Preview while third displays incorrectly.
