There's nothing wrong with this log file either, but as Lars notes
your problem stems from old mtx files left in your working directory.
These files are used by fontinst to cache data extracted from the afm
files in a format more suitable for Tex.
Just purge any old files left in your working directory and run the
rm -f *.mtx *.pl *.vpl *.log *.tfm *.vf *.fd *-rec.tex *.map
On a related note, it's also a good idea to purge old tfm, vf and fd
files from the Tex tree before installing any new files. The set of
files created by the drivers discussed later in the guide differ from
what you get in the first tutorial.
You'll probably want to use a Makefile or a shell script if you plan
to work through the other tutorials as well.
