It's weird. Looking through the rest of David's log, it replaced some of
them, but not all. I never claimed to be a sed wizard. To David, I'd say
open in a text editor and do a global find/replace.

Anyway, back to an earlier suggestion by Hans, --ro=TEXMFMAIN,TEXMFTE
seems to work for me, except in the case of Adobe Utopia. In that case,
--ro=TEXMFMAIN,TEXMFGW should work. Actually, I see the Utopia lines
replicated for tl2003+. Should it not be:

[That said, I'm getting perplexing results on a texfont --en=ec type-
tmf.dat install: there's an insistence on creating bitmaps for these fonts!]
