I also noted that the man page for t1unmac says that the correct incantation is now

t1unmac -r AJenIta/..namedfork/rsrc >ajenita.pfb

The same modification appears to work most of the time with Fondu, though it appears you may have to try variants like

fondu -r AJenIta
fondu -r AJenIta/..namedfork

depending on how the original LWFN was packaged.
