But it's true that some variables ($lm and such) were added recently
without declaring them first and adding some default value somewhere,
so perl complains about "undeclared variables" (adding "my $lm" at the
beginning surely helps, but that's not the only undeclared variable).

The problem is exactly that: the latest version "doesn't work".

But I can't comment much more - whenever I try to use it under windows
I give up trying to find the cause of the problems and proceed
manually (texfont claims to have produced such-and-such files, but no
files are created and no checking is made whether they are produced or
not - some steps which return an error are simply ignored).
