I'm very sorry to bother you. I'm attempting to create a port of
HieroTeX, which enables one to typeset Egyptian hieroglypics using
LaTeX. I've got it mostly working for me on i386 and sparc64 (current of
2005-11-19 in both cases) but I can't get the Type 1 fonts to work with
pdflatex. At the end of the install process I copy pdftex.cfg to
/usr/local/share/texmf-local/pdftex/pdftex.cfg and then run mktexlsr
followed by updmap.
There are two problems:
1. This doesn't work: The Type 1 fonts are not available to pdflatex,
2. I don't know what the right thing to do is if
/usr/local/share/texmf-local/pdftex/pdftex.cfg already exists. Or
rather, I can see that the right thing to do is to modify it if it
exists and create it if it doesn't, but I don't know how one handles
that in the context of creating a port.
Googling and looking at other LaTeX-related ports hasn't helped with
this. The port is attached. I'll be very grateful if anyone can tell me
just what I'm missing.
NB: To make a LaTeX document containing hieroglyphics for testing you
can do the following:
