Hi Karen,

first of all, I guess the build thing is now resolved.

>  file directly to PDF (i.e. pdftex), but I need vertical writing and UTF-8, which forces me to use uptex, and there is no such thing as "uppdftex".  For testing right now, I wish I could "see" the test dvi somehow to know that uptex worked okay - I looked through

Do you use my tlptexlive repository?
There you should get updates to most programs, plus pxdvi which allows you to see the dvi file generated.

the dvi generated by (u)p(la)tex are not normald dvi files, the have some additional fields. Tha's why there is pxdvi. dvipdfmx already supports these specialities.

I assume you are fluent in Japanese, but even if not, you can post questions specific to Japanese TeX to the TeX Q&A, either the old style list type
or the new style forum

In any cases, asking me should also work for most things

All the best
