I've downloaded the zip file. there's obviously a bug as there is a VF+
a TFM but without base font. Obviously, the  rsmoroma virtual font
points to some rrsmoroma as base font, which is missing (it should have
a TFM and this one should be declared in the .map file).

The whole TeX stuff looks corrupted in this zip file...
