Hi Bruno,

Please could you send me line 334 of build/font/devpdf/util/BuildFoundries and 
change line 
335 to:-

    return [] if $?;

Remove the file build/font/devpdf/download (if it exists) and run make. This 
should get further. 
If it does, please also attach the build/font/devpdf/download file.

I'd like to see line 334 because it should contain the ghostscript program 
name, gs, but I can 
duplicate the error if ghostscript is not installed. The change to line 335 
will stop the error in this
