Trying to turn mathptm into mathpbk...

I like to typeset things in ITC Bookman, because I think Times Roman
is at least as overused as Computer Modern, if not more so. Given
that, I thought I might try turning the mathptm package into mathpbk.

To do this, I'd have to modify the sources for the virtual fonts that
go are part of mathptm. Easy enough, I thought, since the source was
there in the psfonts/tools/mathptm directory. Unfortunately, the
source there doesn't seem to work, but dies parsing the cm*.pl files;
thus my modifications for a mathpbk were doomed to failure.

Enclosed is a session log from doing a make in an unmodified 
psfonts/tools/mathptm directory.

Help/fixes would be appreciated,
