Re: xdvipdfmx:fatal: This font using the "seac" command for accented, characters...

Dear Ken:

Thanks for the notice!

Btw., recently I experienced xpdf failing to start due to rebasement errors similar to what a few people reported here months ago, and the xpdf version from your repository worked for me. So I'd be happy to see your xpdf compilation in the standard cygwin distribution.

No, I don't think XeTeX is dying. A look at its git repository shows
lots of commits from Jonathan Kew and Arthur Reutenauer in the last
few months.

The last commit was over 1 month ago: a 1-line change from JK. I'm not
overly optimistic that anything will happen to this bug report at all.
But, anyway, thank you for having reported!

I had some private correspondence with Akira Kakuto about my bug report,
and he said it isn't a bug.  The problem is simply that xetex has very
limited support for type1 fonts, and the solution is to remove them from
the fonts that fontconfig knows about, as you've done.  So I'll probably
make this change the next time I update texlive.
