Your old xdvipdfmx might be able to find some fonts inside the jailed TeX installation. This behaviour is documented for kind of "TeX legacy fonts", probably meaning those fonts pdfTeX would also find.

But xdvipdfmx mostly asks the fonts service to pass this or that font face (or variant), according to the given specification. Maybe you just need to run fc-cache inside the jail…

In other words: xetex and xdvipdfmx can use those fonts fc-list or fc-match can name on the command line.



One of the main causes of dust is janitors.
