Did you have the original output to compare with? Does it match
glyph-by-glyph? I'm always interested in concrete examples of TeX's
On a point of detail, I note that as you were presumably using LaTeX 2.09
in your thesis, you still were when you recompiled it 25 years later --
the initial \documentstyle would trigger LaTeX's 2.09 mode. I haven't
used it in a long time, though :-)

In effect, they already are. The question is what to do with them.
