This type of patch to type-gyr.tex should help:

-\starttypescript[serif][palatino][ec,texnansi,cs,el,qx,rm,t5,t2a,t2b,t2c,l7x]
+\starttypescript[serif][palatino,pagella][ec,texnansi,cs,el,qx,rm,t5,t2a,t2b,t2c,l7x]

(you can't define a typeface for an undefined typescript).

Hans doesn't like avantgarde, so for you adventor you will have
to create a completely new typescript, as it was never previously
defined in the core.

Cheers,
Taco

FYI: This is *not* a font map file, despite it's name. The loading gets
triggered by mistake due to this line in type-ini.tex:

\usetypescript[#3,\t!map][#4][\t!name,\t!default,\typefaceencoding,\t!special]%
