[OS X TeX] font install July 6

Hello.

Thanks for the advice.  I had copied Bruno Voisin's instructions  
verbatim, but even after changing input to \input and typing fontinst  
instead of fontint, when the file (named Csc-drv.tex)

\input fontinst.sty
\latinfamily{Csc}{}
\bye

was sent through TeXShop with Plain Tex and Tex with Ghostscript  
invoked in the typeset menu, Tex complained that fontinst 1.924 was  
called for, but fontinst 1.8 was provided. (There were unknown  
commands like \begincomment.  I had installed TeXShop 2.03 with the i- 
installer, so it's apparently in need of a newer version of  
fontinst.)  OK, so I got fontinst 1.928, and replaced 1.8 with 1.928,  
which I put in the main Library where 1.8 had been. (First I tried  
1.924 itself.)   Running Tex now produces the following console  
output.  It appears that certain etx files (namely 8r.etx)  can't be  
found.  Are they not internal to fontinst?  (Files labeled Cscr8a.pl  
and Cscr8a.mtx are now produced in the folder containing the source  
file Csc-drv.tex.  What's not produced are the fd and vpl files.)

Peter Dyballa recommended a longer source file that would do more  
steps in Bruno Voisin's instructions but I hoped to get the simpler  
one working first.  Peter also mentioned a "simple fontinst.engine".   
What's that, and how do you use it?

Suggestions?

Best,  Charles Pugh
