I finally realise that it's all a problem with METAPOST... and  
Ghostscript which does conversions for MP. The final step would be to  
create sym-links to the Computer Modern PostScript fonts in /usr/local/ 

	pushd /usr/local/share/ghostscript/fonts
	apply 'sudo ln -s' /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf-dist/fonts/type1/ 

so that Ghostscript gains access to them. Actually all PostScript and  
TrueType fonts which might get used somehow in TeX should have links  
pointing to them in the Ghostscript area. And must be named in a  
Fontmap file...

I have this installed since years, and neither me nor Fink are  
removing these sym-links or additional Fontmap files since I have them  
installed in /usr/local/share/ghostscript/fonts (or /sw/share/ 
ghostscript/fonts with Fink). This is also working with GS 8.70, it  
looks as if gs is loading all the Fontmap files and then executing  
what's inside.



The human brain operates at only 10% of its capacity. The rest is  
overhead for the operating system.
