Here's what I figured out about the remaining problems you discovered:

This turned out to be a three-way conflict between amsmath.sty,
overrightarrow.sty, and empheq.sty (actually, mathtools.sty, which now
is used by empheq.sty).  The solution is to move the
"\let\Rightarrowfill@=\relax" line from the AMS setup to the
overrightarrow setup in symbol.tex.

Now that empheq.sty loads mathtools.sty, there's a conflict between
mathtools.sty's definition of \downbracketfill and \upbracketfill and
those defined by symbols.tex to show how to make extensible brackets.
The solution is to rename symbol.tex's \downbracketfill and
\upbracketfill to something like \DAdownbracketfill and

These are out of my control; the TeX Live crew needs to ensure that
the fonts needed by protosem.sty and yhmath.sty are installed
correctly for pdflatex, dvips, xdvi, etc.  Even a trivial document
like the following is problematic in TeX Live:




    \[ \wideparen{ABCabc} \]


The next release of symbols.tex should be compatible with TeX Live.
Thanks again for bringing these problems with symbols.tex to my
