I'd like to report a bug with the Solaris version of vptovf.
(TeXLive 2003) When running vptovf on a vpl file, it makes the
tfm file okay, but only gets part way through making the vf file,
and then reports:

vptovf: fatal: putbyte(255) failed.

We are running Solaris 8 on sparc.

(We also tried the Linux version of vptovf [TeXLive 2003], and it
worked okay.  The problem seems to be restricted to the Solaris
