That didn't take long:

checking for kpse_find_file in -lkpathsea... no
configure: error: kpathsea library not found
This version of dvipdfmx requires the kpathsea library and its  
headers. If
you know where it is you might try setting the LDFLAGS environment  
with -L pointing to the directory containing libkpathsea.a.

I updated GW-TeX in i-Installer and made sure cli activation was  
checked --- what else should I do here?
