I grabbed the fonts from CentOS 7.6 in


and copied them onto my CentOS 7.9 system.

I then reran 'configure' in 1.22.4 with


as an argument, and reinstalled things.

I recreated the file


using 'groff' as per usual, i.e. no special embedding. I do note that now I still have:

$ pdffonts bad*pdf
name                                 type              encoding         emb sub 
uni object ID
------------------------------------ ----------------- ---------------- --- --- 
--- ---------
MZESMJ+Times-Italic                  Type 1C           WinAnsi          yes yes 
no       9  0
GQRLKW+Times-Roman                   Type 1C           WinAnsi          yes yes 
no       7  0
Symbol                               Type 1            Custom           no  no  
no      11  0

        evince bad-sqrt.pdf

I note that it now works as previously, i.e. the long tail on the square root sign covering the entire expression has now reappeared.

Thanks to all for the explaining things so that I knew where to go fishing

Somebody needs to tell the CentOS team or whoever they are these days that they need to stop removing things from standard packages.

Out of curiousity, where on other people's systems are those '.pfb. files?
