glad to hear that it worked!  Here some remarks.

Why `sudo' for running fontforge and the other commands?  In general,
you should *work* and *create* files in your home directory.  If
everything is OK, you should then *install* to /usr/local/ (or
whatever).  `sudo' is far too dangerous for normal work.

Here's a typo: `CJKB' -> `CJKb'.  Given that HanSource has a real bold
variant, you could (and probably should) replace this poorman's
emboldening with something better.
