Dear list,
the command \vpl_ligature has changed in fontinst 1.902. This results in
LIG entries for ff, ffl, and ffi in *, even if there are no such
glyphs in the font. The resulting 8r-tfm file is not usable for
   With fontinst 1.801 one gets Warning: \ligature for unknown slot ...
and the final 8r-pl-file has no reference to ff, ffl, and ffi.
   Is this intentional?
