 This is because the (rather old) version of lilypond in pkgsrc
 apparently expects to be working with teTeX 2, not teTeX 3.  I found
 a reference to the problem in Gentoo's Bugzilla:
 (In short their hack is: "ln -s /usr/pkg/bin/mf /usr/pkg/bin/inimf".)
 Having tried the above myself, I can attest it works, however the build
 subsequently fails with another problem: it can't find the file
 mf-nowin.base.  I saw references on the web to the same workaround
 in this situation, linking mf.base to mf-nowin.base.  That didn't work,
 Probably the best thing to do is move the package to a more recent
 version that does work with teTeX 3.  Unfortunately, it looks like the
 2.8 and 2.10 releases expect gcc 4 as a minimum, so 2.6 might be the
 newest that would work for some pkgsrc users.
