Quick update:  This compiled (with warnings) on my Mac and seems to run 
fine.  It does appear to support 5.25" 360K images and I was able to 
extract files from the 1186/6085 images (from Bitsavers). The ViewPoint 
images do not seem to have any loosely-packaged font files on them, 
they're all in some kind of container format.  The 1186 images  yielded 
a bit more fruit, there are font files with extension ".STRIKE" on the 
XDE floppies and ".PSCFONT" on "Medley LispUsers #15".

Neither of these seem to match the few examples of filenames I see in 
the 1186 docs, but I'll see if I can get a couple of these disks written 
out and see what's what later this week.

I also looked briefly at the images for the 1108 and nothing obvious 
jumped out.
