OK, I should have known better than to only compare with an
under-letter-accent. The fix is, as far as I can tell, valid and I indend
to fix latin.mtx in the same way myself (unless Ulrik Vieth has already
done that---latin.mtx is rather the part of fontinst he manages, you see).
It might be unneccessary to set macronsmall (since I can't find anywhere it
is used, unlike for example tildesmall), but at the moment it is best to
play it safe.
