Thank you for maintaining and updating TeX Live for cygwin.

When we use dvipdfmx with Japanese fonts, we might encounter warnings/fatal:

dvipdfmx:warning: Could not locate a virtual/physical font for TFM "gbm".
dvipdfmx:warning: >> There are no valid font mapping entry for this font.
dvipdfmx:warning: >> Font file name "gbm" was assumed but failed to locate that font.
dvipdfmx:fatal: Cannot proceed without .vf or "physical" font for PDF output...

To avoid them, we'd need this change:

--- /usr/share/texmf-dist/dvipdfmx/dvipdfmx.cfg	2017-05-07
08:00:30.790411600 +0900
+++ /usr/share/texmf-dist/dvipdfmx/dvipdfmx.cfg	2017-05-05 06:03:31.000000000 +0900

 %% Put additional fontmap files here (usually for Type0 fonts)

 % the following file is generated by updmap(-sys) from the
 % KanjiMap entries in the updmap.cfg file.

But the file 'usr/share/texmf-dist/dvipdfmx/dvipdfmx.cfg' is packaged in

So please put some codes like this into
if it doesn't cause unwanted effects.

cp /usr/share/texmf-dist/dvipdfmx/dvipdfmx.cfg \
sed -e 's/^\%f  cid-x\.map/f  cid-x\.map/' \
   /usr/share/texmf-dist/dvipdfmx/dvipdfmx.cfg.orig \
 > /usr/share/texmf-dist/dvipdfmx/dvipdfmx.cfg

And we might need a preremove script for reverting the change...

Thanks for the report.  I'll fix this for the next release.
