I'm using unstable/sid, and did apt-get update yesterday.
My system has xdvi-ja from xdvik-ja package, and your
example (test.tex) file is processed fine with jlatex
and is shown correctly with xdvi-ja.
My /etc/vfontcap has these lines at the head:
These lines are written in /etc/vfont/00vflib2, and
merged into /etc/vfontcap using /usr/sbin/update-vfontcap.
My system has also /var/lib/defoma/vflib2.d/vfontcap,
and it has these lines at the end:
### Debian GeneralFamily Font
And I think this file is created by postinst of vflib2
using "defoma-app update vflib2" automatically.
Here is the output from "dpkg -l ttf-kochi-* vflib2 defoma":
ii ttf-kochi-goth 0.2.20020727-2 Kochi Gothic Japanese TrueType font without
