It seems that the problem is resolved by editing

   /etc/texmf/dvipdfm/dvipdfmx.cfg

commenting the line "f pdftex.map"
and uncommenting "f dvipdfm.map"

I'm far from an expert in xetex, so I don't know if this is the
appropriate solution or if it causes other problems.

I don't think this can be right.

I don't think testing for .dpkg-new is right.  Let me go back a step:
why won't including the file work ?  Is it possible to detect that
condition explicitly, or depend on something more closely associated
with it ?

You seem to be explaining how your current (or planned) maintainer
scripts work.  Can we leave that aside for the moment while you
explain how (La)TeX works ?  That is, what are the various moving
parts that (La)TeX has and what steps it requires, etc. ?

You can tell whether you're running under dpkg, too: either by having
your maintainer scripts call
 	update-texmf-config --maintscript language
or some such, or by having update-texmf-config check for the
environment variables that the new dpkg provides to maintscripts.

Err, what are you having difficulty testing ?

A broken computer an travelling ...

For the other question maybe someone else can write an explanation until I 
am back from the mountains. But in short, no, we only should include 
snippets of packages keing ready configured otherwise later calls to 
updmap-sys will break. Details I cannot give now.

Please remove/rename your local psTricks installation and run
update-texmf. Does this solve your problem?

I *think* #522371 is another incarnation of this bug. I describes an
FTBFS, hence severity of our bug is "grave".
