Hi Owen,

To begin with, glad to meet you!

What an annoying problem. Here's what I could suggest:

- Try 'git -xdf' to clean your repository entirely, removing any
untracked or ignored files. If you're touching fonts, it may be that
some build artifacts have to be removed (likewise, people often need
such a procedure or a 'make doc-clean' for 'make doc' to succeed after
changes in the documentation build system). Beware if you have important
files (a dry run is advised, using -xdfn).

- I'm puzzled on what to think of

Perhaps your Fontforge is too old?

Hope that helps!
