OK, thanks for the information. Looks complicated, and of course,
requires font files. I see the required files are distributed with
Windows XP, so I do have a copy of them. Not sure exactly what the
license on them is, though.
I will work on making the buildsystem cope with these things, but it
looks complicated enough that it is not worth holding up the
zh-1.1-final release. The PDF for that can be built manually, and
hopefully I'll have a plain simple "make pdf" working for later versions.
So, please go ahead and create your tag at your convenience.
