It takes my computer also about four to five hours to compile the
lot (AMD64 3200+ Venice on an MSI K8 Neo2 Platinum).

The reason for the long duration is that FontForge now looks very hard
to convert from TTF to Type1 fonts.  One uses cubic, the other uses
bezier splines.

I don't think we'll need to recompile these font packages many times
anymore. ;D

Thanks, so now a lot more people can try out the packages.

Sorry chap.  I only realized that they were built for "amd64" (any)
and not for "all" when I was uploading them.  Doh...
The new font packages have been uploaded to Alioth.

Thanks for testing the packages on TeXlive.  It's nice to see
cross-compatibility.  Not that it's that hard anyway: the
dh_installtex tool does most of the hard work.

Best regards
