Hello Bob,

thanks for sharing your experience. Now I understand a bit more how
things play together. I also observed that cfftot1 generates the PFBs
while autoinst just created an empty dir. So I was unsure where to look
for the culprit.

I came upon it after yesterday's update to AR 11.0.3. On noticing that
the Minion files were newer compared to AR 11.0.2 I hoped that the fonts
were improved somehow so I ran autoinst again and got a different result
(no PFBs). Now I see that it is not a TL issue but more things collude.
