Reposting using Mozilla Firefox instead of Links -- hopefully, this will fix the
formatting.

Found the possible problem.

1) Looks like dvipdfm map files are harmful. Try removing
.../texmf/fonts/map/dvipdfm/cm-super/ at all, rerunning
updmap and retesting the PDF output. Even without them,
dvipdfm uses Type1 fonts.

2) I don't like the fact that the configuration is saved
in /root/.texmf-var: this way, all changes in font
configuration apply to root only.

Fix: TEXMFVAR=/usr/share/texmf-var updmap

Not sure if that also applies to "texconfig dvips paper
letter" command in the book.
