The latter is the correct one, I think; the former is probably residue 
from an early release you installed, and should have been removed by 
the later installer, but was missed..... I don't recall ever 
(intentionally) installing directly into that location, so it was 
probably a buggy installation script at some point. :(

Possibly; but I fear it may insert only a minimal 'post' table that 
doesn't actually include glyph names... Format 3 'post', or something 
like that.
