No. I am just fixing an error in fmtutil.cnf. The standard fmtutil.cnf
called mf (not the script version) for creating the mf format. I have
changed that to
mf mf-nowin -
if you don't do that, mf will fail on systems without X11 installed
(e.g. default Mac OS X). Maybe Jonathan can make an Aqua mf?
