have them mapped to "real" fonts (i.e., fonts that are installed on my

I'm converting (to Allegro CL on a Sparc) some (a lot of) code which
has been on the Symbolics for years, and I would like to make as few
changes to the code as possible.  This code has explicit

a real font, either on the Symbolics or any other platform - it's a
name that was invented "for portability."
