There is something wrong with your ls-R files. As you can see on lines
2137, 2138, 2149, xetex tries to locate devtrel.tec in the current
directory only and then gives up. Compare for instance lines 2119 and
below. File tex-text.tec is not found in the current directory but
xetex tries the system directory and succeeds. Who is the owner of the
ls-R files? If they are owned by root and you run mktexlsr as a normal
user, you will not be allowed to update them. If this does not help,
maybe the file search path was modfied since I aske Jonathan Kew a few
years ago and it really requires fontmapping instead of fontmappings.

There is another potential problem that can show up later. You have
Pothana fonts at 3 places:
XeTeX and xdvidfmx could be confused.
