Works like a charm. Thanks! :)

I reported the issue to the LilyPond crew, as well.

Hi, thanks for your help!

It looks like the metapost version from TeX Live 2011 no longer uses (or creates) .mem files; it needs to load the .mp file instead. See "texlive-2011-workaround.patch".

Can you give this new package a whirl to see if it works for you?

Well, in response to my previous comment, a quick hack that fixes my compilation problem is to change the following line (429) in scripts/build/

- execute_command 1, ("mpost", "-mem=mf2pt1", "-progname=mpost",
+ execute_command 1, ("mpost", "-mem=../../mf2pt1", "-progname=mpost",

I don't know anything about make/automake/etc, so I'm sure there must be a proper way of inserting the correct path there. In stepmake/stepmake/metafont-rules.make, the mf2pt1 perl script is called with the MFINPUTS env var set to the correct path, but either mf2pt1 or mpost doesn't seem to honor it, hence the message, "Sorry, I can't find the 'mf2pt1' preload file...." (this is only my assumption).

Anyway, hope this helps.

Hi. I'm having a problem compiling on an up-to-date system using testing repos. I end up with this message:

The workaround works fine here. Thanks.

StefanHusmann: Thanks, it looks like the mf2pt1 script (included in the LilyPond distribution) needs updating for the latest texlive. I've added a patch to work around the issue for now, until I can investigate further.

smoge: I can't reproduce a build failure related to the compiler. Can you send me the build log?

StefanHusmann: I'm actually not sure if it is related to gcc 4.6 or not, but I remember a while ago I could only build with 4.5.2, but the errors were different. Do you have a clue what is the problem?

I have (another ?) problem, it is related to metapost in the new texlive-bin. Lots of

Hi! Is it building for you? I get strange error here after gcc 4.6/
