 SR> sigh. added plfonts and platex to tex-langfrench

 I do not think that French friends really need platex ;-)
 Daniel, please check if aeguill really needs platex, or only glyphs 
 form plfonts.

You are right Staszek, as I mentionned it in my previous message,
what _is_ required is:
a) Polish fonts:
   texmf/fonts/tfm/public/pl
   texmf/fonts/type1/public/pl
b) the font definition file:
   texmf/tex/latex/platex/ot4cmr.fd
That's all.

Instead of adding these dependencies to tex-langfrench, I would
suggest to add them to aeguill.tpm for two reasons:
1) people adding the aeguill package with install-package.sh should get
   the Polish fonts too;
2) Fabrice provides a way, in fpTeX, to partially select a collection,
   I guess people using that feature for tex-langfrench will
   not see the point of adding Polish fonts for French and might 
   unselect them :-(
