[NTG-pdftex] pdftex 1.20a-rc7.1 SlantFont limitcheck

Minor point only: In mapfile.c (e. g. current texlive), somehow the
absolute value function for SlantFont range check got lost; the line

    if ((fm_ptr->slant) >= 1000) {

should be:

    if (abs(fm_ptr->slant) >= 1000) {

(The abs() _is_ there for ExtendFont check, so it allows even to type e.
g. -1.9 ExtendFont with flipped characters; ok, why not :-)
