Where does kpsewhich report that psfonts.map is really located?

According to the output you showed, xdv2pdf is looking in the  
following places, and their subdirectories:


(where the "!!" prefix indicates that it won't really search the  
disk, it will rely on the ls-R file). These don't look like Fink  
paths, they look like typical TeX Live paths; with Fink, I'd expect  
paths beginning /sw/...

So this makes me wonder if xdv2pdf is not finding your Fink teTeX  
copy of texmf.cnf, but perhaps a different version of the file.  
Either you need to adjust the paths in the .cnf file xdv2pdf uses, or  
you need a copy (or symlink) to psfonts.map in one of the places  
where it is already searching.

(I'm afraid I don't use Fink's TeX, so I'm not sure of the precise  
details of how it is set up. The best answer would be for someone who  
understands Fink to provide an actual package, but I'm not in a  
position to do that for now.)
