[what version of LilyPond is in Suse 7.2]

Thanks for the report.  This has been fixed in the latest development
version, but somehow this fix hasn't made it into the stable branch
(1.4.8) yet.

This section

now reads:

set datadir="/home/fred/usr/share/lilypond"

if ( $?GS_FONTPATH ) then
        setenv GS_FONTPATH
        setenv GS_FONTPATH "$datadir/afm:/usr/share/lilypond/pfa"
if ( $?GS_LIB ) then
        setenv GS_LIB "$datadir/ps:$GS_LIB"
        setenv GS_LIB "$datadir/ps"

Yes, I can imagine.  This will be in 1.4.9, sorry about this.
