My earlier post to the list about using did it a disservice
- as Peter pointed out, most people will find the simple use all they
need.  It really is as simple as *fontfile*

It figures out the name of the font  and chooses some sensible defaults.
The only question you have to answer is basically whether this particular
font file is for the R, I, B, or BI variant of the font, and the other
questions have sensible defaults.  There is a post
on my blog that shows running the script to install all four of the
variants of the Lora font, with all output and the prompts the script
asks.  It does produce a lot of output, but the colorizing helps to pick
out the important things.
