As a workaround to my previous email, I'm trying to use a different
system.  I've put the .PS file in the same directory as two of fonts I
need, but gs says it can't find them even when I use -P or -I flags:


% !gs
gs -P -I /usr/home/dcltdw -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite
-sOutputFile=newcomer-1-page.pdf -dBATCH newcomer-1-page.ps

I'm completely baffled why the -I or -P flags are being ignored.  Any
suggestions?

thanks,
