After some browsing of files, I think I can say that the error lies in
latin.mtx. The encoding expects the glyph for the macron accent to be named
Macronsmall in this context, and latin.mtx never says
although it says for example
Therefore, since the glyph is never set, it will just be ignored when the
VPL is written.
