I have problem with typesetting six symbols from Type1 font with metapost
which refuse to read the corresponding line in given curr.map
containing just one line
bor <bor.pfb
(the same problem arises with mp1.999 also with virtual fonts, but in
that case helps to give the corresponding line as fontmapline directly,
which does not help here:
%q.mp
path s;
fontmapfile "curr.map";
% fontmapline "bor <bor.pfb";
verbatimtex
\font\astro bor scaled 1095
\astro
etex
beginfig(4);
w:=30u; h:=24u;
s:=fullcircle xscaled w yscaled h;
a:=.5;
z0=origin;
z1=point a of s;
z2=point 2 of s;
z1=point 4-a of s;
for k=4 upto 6: z[k]=z[k-3] rotated180; endfor
i:=-1;
label(btex C etex,z[incr i]);
label(btex \i etex,z[incr i]);
label(btex A etex,z[incr i]);
label(btex D etex,z[incr i]);
label(btex I etex,z[incr i]);
label(btex U etex,z[incr i]);
label(btex E etex,z[incr i]);
endfig;
end
The resulting mpx file seems to be OK, but mpost or stops completely, or
gives the following log:
This is MetaPost, version 1.999 (TeX Live 2014/W32TeX) (kpathsea version

Thanks for help,
