OK.  Now my modified install-pkgs.sh script runs to completion, but is
not installing two files that it looks for: rpsyr.tfm and rpzdr.tfm

Those two files are (or were) supposedly in the package
texlive-fonts-recommended -- but in Saucy Alpha-1 that is not the case.
 apt-file find says they do not exist in any package known to it in
Saucy.  Do you know if they have been removed from Texlive 2013?  In
which case, should I/we modify the install-pkgs.sh script not to look
for them any more?  How are they being used by Ubuntu Manual?  A grep
through the source tree does not find any references to them except in
the script.
