README says: remove old version before building. Maybe is this?

But here cidmaps.tgz is missing and fontforge is down here for maintenance.

I  am using old version of lilypond (for personal reasons: lazy to upgrade.)

with fontforge 2012 version (from slackware-14.0 repo!) I don't remember the reason I was sticking with this. Probably, again lazy, but maybe not :p

Grab it from here if you want it

One version behind.
potrace-1.11-i686-1_SBo vs 1.12
t1utils-1.38-i686-1_SBo vs 1.39

Current versions

In those cases I try to mix the repos. I am using old version from SBo (if 14.1 i go 14.0)

It's easy to find the mix either with update in sbopkg or with grep LOCATION /var/log/packages/* if you are using a folder with version number.
