  2. untar it as /usr/src/local/cy-3.8.5
  3. cp -p texinputs/* /usr/share/texmf/tex/generic/xypic/
  4. cp -p texfonts/*.tfm /usr/share/texmf/fonts/tfm/public/xypic/
  5. cp -p mfinputs/*.mf /usr/share/texmf/fonts/source/public/xypic/
  6. cp -p type1/*.pfb /usr/share/texmf/fonts/type1/public/xypic/
  7. cp -p pfm/*.pfm /usr/share/texmf/fonts/pfm/public/xypic/
  8. cp -p afm/*.afm /usr/share/texmf/fonts/afm/public/xypic/
  9. cp -p map/* /usr/share/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/xypic/
