Thanks. If I can do anything (e.g. test the files to check if
everything is there and working) tell me. Btw: During my
investigations about the package I tried the pfa and it didn't work.
Adobe reader complain that it couldn't extract the glyphs. So imho
one should replace it if possible by the pfb used by texlive.
