Hm. It's not a general mipsel/alpha/mips problem. At least in the sid
chroot on vaughan, a mipsel box, the command (mktextfm ecrm1728) works
just fine. I won't have time to investigate this further, but I suspect
that the underlying problem is that on the buildds, e.g. in
mktextmf tries to create the file in a TEXMF tree rooted in the current
directory (/home/buildd/.texmf-var) instead of the varfonts tree in
/tmp. Maybe the home directory just doesn't exist.
This may be a problem with the configuration on the buildds, we'd need
the output of
kpsewhich --format='web2c files' mktex.cnf
as well as the file contents of the resulting filename, on the buildd.
I'm formally on vacation and only able to write this mail out of sheer
luck, and won't be able to work on that in the next days.
