Sorry, I'm out of date.
Yes, PDFlib-4.0.2 can support OpenType with TT/PS outline.
And xpdf-1.0 has HKSCS CMap file in Chinese-Traditional

FT2 support OpenType 1.3. But this does not mean X/xpdf can
support OpenType(at least now, sorry I'm not very sure, but
xpdf has CFF code in it).
Maybe you can:
1. embed the OpenType font via PDFlib.
2. convert otf to TTF/CID-Keyed font with PfaEdit(?).
If you don't embed the fonts, xpdf will use font loaded by X(
I mean Chinese font), it means you need a TTF with extra HKSCS
glyph. So maybe 1. is the better solution.
* Can XFree86-4.2.0 load CFF?
FYI only, maybe I'm wrong.
