Are you using potrace? It is a lot faster than autotrace.

If you are desparate, try

   make -C mf get-pfa

it will download the PFAs from the site.

You're encouraged to make a noarch package of the docs; I couldn't get
RPM to do it, though.

No, no.

Yes: it will cause dependency problems and spurious bugreports. I
think it's a bad idea.
