you already had dropped it, only i put it in again, and incompletely,
only the scanning. I really shouldn't have done this, sorry. Hope it's
of limited trouble. Now that 1.20b is out, what quickly can be done is
removing the '!' case from the manual.

Regards, Hartmut

P. S. i shuffled the code a bit in this area of mapfile.c to separate
.enc and fontfile flags handling, hope that this was ok.
