Thank you. I now understand what should have proposed at the first post.

I'm surprised to hear this. Then are lib/Fontmap and lib/FAPIcidfmap
also not designed to read other files from them?
The Fedora (one of Linux distribution, you know) uses this mechanism
since about 2.5 years ago on ghostscript 8.15.
Now Fedora8 switches to 8.60 which has no cjk support and
I have in trouble.
If it is not designed and there is no plan to design,
I have to think another way.

Thank you for your useful comment.
