\bigg in latex: query

\bigg in latex: query

Latex allows to set pointsize at 10pt, 11pt or 12 pt, but this does not work
with Knuth's macro \bigg#1.  There seem to be two problems, one easily
fixed, and the other seeminly hard.  The easy fix: change 14.5pt in
\vbox\to\14.5pt{} to 1.45em.  The hard part is that the parameter #1
comes out in 10pt size, regardless of the point size chosen on the
\documentstyle line of the .tex file.  The same problem exists of course
with all macros related to \bigg.

The*distribution contains a standard package, exscale.
after \usepackage{exscale} then \big and friends work as expected with
class options like 12pt, and size commands like \large.



1. AMS-LaTeX 1.2, PS AMSFonts, and psamsfonts.ins

I use Textures 1.7, have the PostScript AMSFonts from Blue Sky Research
and I just installed LaTeX2e and AMS-LaTeX 1.2. The read me file that
accompanies AMS-LaTeX 1.2 says:

This indicates that there should be a file called psamsfonts.ins that I
should be TeXing. The AMS-LaTeX 1.2 distribution does not include this
file. What should I be doing?

I TeXed amsfonts.ins and it created:


which I promptly put in my TeX inputs folder. Was this the right thing to do?

Thank you for any help you can give me.
