    I've updated the sources to include pdftex 1.40-rc4 (change #2559).

Yay, thanks!!

    srcdir=../../../texk/web2c /bin/sh ../../../texk/web2c/web2c/convert mf

Uggggh.  I will look if no one else gets there first.

    And can we PLEASE have verbose error messages from convert?

I'll see, I don't remember anything any more.  Anyway, it's usually a
lot harder to break convert than to fix it ...

    symlink/alias them to their pdf*tex synonym. 

I think we should definitely keep symlinks.

    And someone must update fmtutil.cnf, of course.

I love this "someone" stuff.  Ok, I will try to make the changes.

    PS: My changes to configure* and the make mechanism need to checked by
    an expert for these. 

And this "expert" stuff too.

I'm sure no one will do anything until it breaks (I don't plan to),
that's how things go in this world ...
