This is ok. It means cmbsy10.tfm has already been built on your system,
no need to rebuild it. So MakeTeXPK's error needs to be ignored.

Means cmbsy5.mf is not on your system. Strange. It has been included in
mfbasfnt lately. Maybe I didn't upload that version? This IS a bug.

This is the wrong variable due to change in my Makefiles. Corrected now.
