I thought Kare sent me her original dvipdfmx, not what she built. Her
dvipdfmx does not work on my computer, it complains about missing

Just to be clear: dvipdfmx from TL (no extra repositories) works fine
even on obsolete CentOS 4.7
Compilation of the binaries from TL svn on CentOS 5.3 works fine.
