The font binaries are not part of the source files. They are provided in the Downloads section.
For building binary font files from source, installation of the Adobe Font Development Kit for OpenType (AFDKO) is necessary. The AFDKO tools are widely used for font development today, and are part of most font editor applications.
Key to building OTF or TTF fonts is

Information and usage instructions can be found by executing
In this repository, all necessary files are in place for building the OTF and TTF fonts.

$ cd Roman/Regular/ $ makeotf -r
For convenience, a shell script named
build.sh is provided in the root directory.
It builds all OTFs and TTFs, and can be executed by typing:
