Thomas to the rescue (again).
Yes, that fixes the problem. Interestingly, the "old" system (which was
from a tex-live disk) had two copies of pdftex.map, one in texmf, the other
in texmf-var. It is the one in texmf-var that is being used.
So what do you recommend that I do. Overwrite the new system's pdftex.map
file with the one from the old machine? Or do I need to somehow merge the
Thanks very much for your help on this.
