Obviously a mistake. In one version, I had a Unix symbolic link
pointing from fontinst.sty to ofontinst.sty. Since this is not
portable to other platforms, I'll try to avoid this next time.

I must have copied the file header and forgot to change it.

It's impossible to spell-check .dtx files with all the embedded code.
I suppose there will be more mistakes like these somewhere else, just
waiting to be found by careful proof-readers like you.
