Well, I don't have texmf-local set up as you do, but
I thought that I would give "getnonfreefonts" a try.

First attempt was :

 > getnonfreefonts-sys -r

but this produced :

 > getnonfreefonts -r

produced no errors, but seemed to do very little,
so next I tried :

 > getnonfreefonts -a

That seemed to do a great deal, but at the end of the
exercise, Guido Herzog's example still fails in the same way ...
