I just tried to fix what I found.  I did not check each 
single "bug" whether it was relevant.  

With the original afm file renamed to lubr8a.afm 
(I do know that this is wrong ;-) fontinst stumbled 
for the first time at

INFO> run \transformfont  <lubr8r> from <lubr8a>
! Argument of \afm_line has an extra }.

\out_line ...mediate \write \out_file {#1}

l.1219 CC scaron 2 ;
                     PCC s 0 0 ; PCC  62 0 ;

And, yes, afmtfm 8.1 failed, too:

! composite character name not found 
CC Zcaron 2 ; PCC Z 0 0 ; PCC  150 185 ;

Linotype ... I am terribly disappointed.  

Thank you for the helpful reply
