Older versions of the MakeTeX scripts assume that the font wasn't
created if strange path errors occured.  This is fixed in the most
recent versions.  I'm not entirely certain this was already fixed in
teTeX 0.4pl8.

The relevant change looks like this, and should be made to both
MakeTeXPK and MakeTeXTFM:

-echo "$0: Running $cmd"
-$cmd </dev/null || { echo "$0: \`$cmd' failed." >&2; exit 1; }
+echo "$progname: Running $cmd"
+$cmd </dev/null || {
+  # Don't abort if only "Strange path" errors occurr.
+  grep '^!' $NAME.log >$$.errs 2>/dev/null
+  grep '^! Strange path' $$.errs >$$.strange 2>/dev/null
+  if cmp $$.errs $$.strange >/dev/null 2>&1 \
+    && test -s $$.strange >/dev/null 2>&1; then
+    echo "$progname: warning: \`$cmd' caused strange path errors." >&2
+  else
+    echo "$progname: \`$cmd' failed." >&2
+    exit 1;
+  fi
