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
