Hi all,

>  http://tug.org/svn/texlive/trunk/Master/tlpkg/tlgs/lib/cidfmap.TeXLive

This file is BTW quite obsolete, please see
a script that is included in TeX Live (cjk-gs-integrate) for auto-generating
these files including the necessary links.

On the above page there is in the second half also lots of technical
details about how the fonts need to be set up, encodings etc.

The problem is that with newer MacOS eg, lotss of fonts have moved into
ttc (true type collections) and Ghostscript does not properly support them.
There are lots of problems with newer fonts, unfortunately.

All the best
