I highly suspect this is a xdvipdfmx issue, since the engine wouldn't
need to real font at all. IIRC, old versions of (x)dvipdfmx had its own
map file, so it might be that updmap(-sys) failed to update it for some
reason. Running xdvipdfmx -v on the xdv file, will print the loaded map
files in the first line, you can then check them and see if the font is
there or not.
