Anyone else using Lout on Arch Linux?

I've been happily using Lout 3.40 to write a math paper, about 96% done.  Haven't touched it in a few months.  Been busy with other stuff.  I've updated Arch (pacman -Syu) once or twice since.  Now when I run lout on my paper's files, the resulting .ps file is lacking all parenthesis, all math symbols such as = and +, and my horizontal curly brackets I've gotten help with here before.  At least a few Dingbat symbols still show up.  Body text is normal.

My Lout installation is in /usr/local/lout, and shouldn't have been touched at all in many months.   I'm not using Arch's Lout package, which is an older version.  I compiled Lout from source, something I've done many times over the years.     I hope my problem is just a missing file, something the newer Arch versions dropped, or maybe it's the PS/PDF viewer, Evince, that's messing up.
