Hi Karl, Norbert,

as you probably have already seen, I have added the 'vert' substitutions for
rotated CJK fonts to ttf2pk2 and it is now the default in the TL SVN
repository (since r30893 from 2013-06-24).  The old version is still
available if explicitly requested via '--disable-ttf2pk --enable-ttf2pk2'.

Hi all,

I'd apreciate any tests you can perform and feedback (about both any
problems and success) in order to eliminate bugs, in particular those
introduced by the transition FreeType 1 => 2.
