[Slackbuilds-users] Problem building lilypond

When building lilypond (with sbopkg) I get the following error:

     ERROR: Please install required programs:  mf-nowin mf mfw mfont mpost

I'm guessing that these are all part of metafont and/or metapost. I have 
a complete install of 13.37 and it appears that at least metafont is 
installed (mfw and mpost don't answer up to a command line invocation). 
I have already installed the listed dependencies fontforge and mftrace

Any idea what's going on?
