This example is a bad one, since it is from a Fink TeX installation.
You should google for the general concept of font installation. It is
described in the Font Installation Guide (texdoc
fontinstallationguide) or, hopefully, still here: http://
If you'll then have specific questions we might feel more motivated
to answer these then to re-write the Font Installation Guide. OTOH,
you could write a nice paper that describes how you managed to
install these fonts.
There is an alternative: XeTeX. Many ancient scripts are supported by
Unicode and so they are by XeTeX. Exception: Egyptian hieroglyphs and
old Egyptian handwriting. There is no range yet reserved for these.
We have to expect it, otherwise we would be surprised.
