%% You are *not* allowed to modify this file.
%% You are *not* allowed to distribute this file.
%% For distribution of the original source see

Could you please clarify this situation for us, and preferably/if
possible also provide the original cspsfont.doc file?

Thanks a lot from the (Debian) teTeX and (Debian) TeX live people
