Now it works. :) But I haven’t installed it systemwide, just in a folder. I 
think I can live with that for the time being, until the version in portage 
is fixed.

Thanks for the help

And very big thanks for XeTeX ;) I never got CJK-Latex running (or at least I 
could not install the fonts). Now it is so easy to use it. I’ve waited for 
this for some time. 

By the way, has anybody tried to use the ruby-package from CJK-Latex? It seems 
to work, but the Furigana do not seem to be high enough, they lap a bit down 
into the Kanji.

Ah, and finally, what about including \XeTeX and \XeLaTeX into the 
fontspec-Package? :)
