The t1-fraktur package has been installed at tug.ctan.org in fonts/t1-fraktur.
It should make its way to a mirror near you in a day or two.

Thanks for the upload,

1. 'fontinst' and Adobe's Fette Fraktur

I am trying to use fontinst to install this font without success..

I have the PFB and AFM files, and have renamed them to pftrf8a.pfb and
pftrf8a.afm, respectively.

I then run the following command:
tex `kpsewhich fontinst.sty`

This produces the .fd files, but no .mtx, .pl or .vpl files.

Curiously enough, if I "lie" to fontinst by renaming the files to pftr8a,
it creates these files.  Does fontinst not know how to deal with "f"
variant files?  If not, how do I "convince" it, other than by "lying" to
it? (Which is probably not the right way to do things.)
