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

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.

Now that I've looked at this more closely, I'm not sure your suggestion is the right thing to do. I don't see anything like it in a native TeX Live installation. Please send me a complete, detailed recipe for reproducing your problem so that I can investigate further.
