In fact, "sgilightgray" isn't defined in there, although "SgiLightGray" and
"sgi light gray" are.  So I defined "sgilightgray" and ran `rgb`.  I get
other complaints about colors, which I'll deal with in the same way.  Seems
an idiotic design, though, if the color names are both CaSe and white space

Now, what can I do to fix things that whine about missing fonts?

And, most importantly, why does using the cloned disk give me errors I
didn't get when I was using the disk I cloned it from?
