Sorry, I looked at the wrong part of your mail. The bug is at line 103 of

The file loads the greek-fontenc.def file using a relative path
assuming that your current directory is the directory containing
greek-euenc.def which certainly is not. The remedy is to remove the
path and replace the line simply with \input{greek-fontenc.def}
If you do not wish to modify the file, you can also type just
greek-fontenc.def without any path when you are asked for another file

I do not know the address of the author of the file, a bug report
should be sent to him.
