I noticed that myself.  I trial-and-errored my way through to install this, 
which leads me to the somewhat off-topic question:  Is there any recommended 
docco or newsgroup/list on fonts - something that would walk me conceptually 
from the font creation through to the installing them in the right location?  
I'm still trying to figure out what all the files are, eg: tfm, pfa  and 
where potrace/mftrace fit in.

IN any case, the trial and error ended up like this:

To allow confgure to generate the makefile, I change configure to look for 
ecrm10.pfa (an ugh! workaround).  Then I started the hunt for the 
ec-fonts-mftraced that would solve the issue.  Thus I was able to build the 
2.4.2 in parallel with the fonts.

For a huge variety of reasons, the ec-fonts-mftraced-1.0.6-1.noarch.rpm didn't 
work for me - for example, the previous 1.0.3 had been installed by root, so 
there were permissions issues.

Next thing was to try to build 1.0.8 from scratch - no Install notes and the 
web site & readme still talk about the sauter fonts.   Finally ran the 
configure, the 'make all install' and then waited for a while (P-266 <g>).  

End result - installed ec-fonts and  2.4.2 and the result is a smashing
