problem with fontinst

Hi,

I am trying to make a t1-encoded font using fontinst like following:

==================== cut here ==========================
\input fontinst.sty
\def\mkfont#1{
\transformfont{#18r}{\reencodefont{8r}{\fromafm{#1}}}
\installfont{#18t}{#18r,latin}{t1}{T1}{}{}{}{}
}

\installfonts
\mkfont{test}
\endinstallfonts
\bye
==================== cut here ==========================

where test.afm is a copy of the font URWGothicL-Book from URW++. This seems
to be trivial, however I got a file test8t.vpl where some characters are
simply empty (eg Ccaron). Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?
I am using the latest fontinst (1.914) with the patch posted here recently.

Thanks,
Thanh
