Problems with vfinst 0.95 and fontinst 1.801


I'm trying to install a font using vfinst 0.95 and fontinst 1.801. I
found several problems. 

First I get this in 'duplicat.lst' written by 1vfinst:
fde305 fder7d     000 dejyosr_.{pfb,afm} Decennie-JYOSFRoman
fde305 fderc7d    000 dejysc__.{pfb,afm} Decennie-JYSCOSFRoman
The "Berry" names indicate that vfinst correctly decided,
Decennie-JYOSFRoman is "old style numeric roman" and
Decennie-JYSCOSFRoman is "old style numeric small caps roman", but then
tells my they are the same. For a test I deleted "dejysc__.{pfb,afm}"
ran "1vfinst" again, then "2vfinst", then "sh newnames.bat" and "tex
makefont". The tex run lead to the next problem: I get "! Missing
number, treated as zero." errors from lines like:
"\transformfont{fderu8r}{\slantfont{-}{\frommtx{fderi8r}}}". The
argument for "\slantfont" should be an integer, so I think this must be
a bug in "2vfinst".

I changed {-} to {0} and ran tex again.

Now the next error occured. The source line:


Produces an:

I have no idea what to do next, have you?
