I believe you! :-)

Okay, CCing Zdenek on this.  But I don't know what other information I 
can share.  The binary of dvipdfmx in the x86_64-linux package 
complained that it needed glibc 2.7, and my copy of CentOS 5.6 has 2.5.  
(When I rented the VPS it came with CentOS 5.5 - I upgraded it to 5.6.)  
I don't know what version of glibc is on Zdenek's systems, and whether 
he has a slightly different build of dvipdfmx for some mysterious 
reason.  In order to find out, I will send a separate email just to him 
(to avoid problems with the mailing list) and attach the binary that 
failed on my machine - he can try it there.  And conversely, if he wants 
to send me his binary, I'll be happy to run it on my machine and report 
back.  And if you or he wants me to try other commands, let me know.
