I am currently rebuilding the whole planet under CentOS 4 (aka
RHEL4). Most packages build out of the box or with only minor changes
(mostly making the spec files behave the same as under FC3 and adding
a few missing packages), but I cannot get lilypond to build. Here is
the error I get:

Assembling raw font to `feta13.pfa'...

I really don't know much about the fonts used in teTeX and lilypond,
so I don't know how to fix it. At the moment, I am rebuilding the
package with pre-built fonts (see
but I would like to build everything from source. Has anyone here got
a hint how to do it?
