all these tools are freaking crappy sometimes... they are really 
non-standards and differents on all platforms...  I tested under GNU and 
cygwin (the versions are different, and it certainly is different under 
BSD too) and it worked (which was not the case with the -E option which 
was not recognized). Maybe it would be best to change '\+' to '*' which 
seems more widespread? The result will be the same, I don't think the 
t1lm*.fd files will change a lot...

Thank you,
