I grabbed these two Fortran routines and used them to successfully
build GRAYOVER (grayover.k).  When I tried to run GRAYOVER, I get a
stream of the following errors:

GRAYOVER: /home/mcidas/workdata/lwfonts.bin                                     
           does not exist.

Evidently, GRAYOVER expects/needs to use information from a file named

Since 'lwfonts.bin' is not a standard McIDAS offering (in either the
Unidata or SSEC versions of McIDAS-X), you will need to contact Dan
Lindsey again and get him to make the file available on their FTP
