I have corrected the scripts which build ISO images, and the install
script, hopefully fixing all the problems Norbert found.

I have also killed the collection tex-psfonts and created a new
tex-fontsrecommended. From the old tex-psfonts I have moved cm-super and
a few others to tex-fontsextra, and the latter is excluded from the demo

With these changes, the difference between the demo version and the full
version is that the collections
are excluded.

according to my test, this gives a demo CD of 620 megabytes, and the
source tree is _not_ compressed any more.

I suggest that interested parties review tex-fontsextra and decide
whether anything there is really of widespread interest. If so, move it
back to tex-fontsrecommended. If there is no interest in any of them
moving, we can reinstate the music collection.

This *does* mean that cm-super is excluded. My own view is that the new
lmfont setup should be widely publicized, and people should be
encouraged to switch to it.
