[tex-live] phaistos

I just tried 

	texdoc phaistos

and looked at the macro names for the glyphs.  I noticed one irregularity:


The word for that object is gauntlet.  If `gaunlet' is not a typo
in the doc file, it would be good to add the proper name


in the documentation and TeX code.  Otherwise, we'll be propagating a
mistake like that Adobe made in *.afm files with

	guillemotright and guillemotleft,

which should have been

	guillemetright and guillemetleft;

they confused the French name for bracketing delimiters with the name
for a sea bird (the two words are etymologically related, however).
