So I figured out where this is coming from and am currently generating
new map files with updmap-sys. Hopefully this will solve the problem.

I guess there are some map file fragments which are OK for pdftex but
which xetex doesn't like... Several maps designed for use with context
look problematic, though other files apparently intended for use with
context look perfectly normal...
