This is easily fixable: when you use mpost 1.503, you also need to use
the mfplain.mp that comes from mpost 1.503's distribution (or add 'dump'
at the end of the file you have on disk already).

For me, it runs past this point (but then it segfaults at finish,
which is a different, totally unrelated bug).

I'll add tracker items for each of these three problems; the one
with the polygonal pen is the hard one to fix. Dan, I'll get back
to you on the algorithm later.

Best wishes,
