Currently, to build Sorts Mill fonts using Sorts Mill Tools 2.x.x, you
must use a ‘recent enough’ commit of Sorts Mill Tools and configure it
with the --enable-legacy-sortsmill-tools configure flag.

Use the source tarballs:
https://bitbucket.org/sortsmill/sortsmill-fonts/downloads/sortsmill-fanwood-1.1.tar.bz2
https://bitbucket.org/sortsmill/sortsmill-fonts/downloads/sortsmill-lindenhill-1.2.tar.bz2
https://bitbucket.org/sortsmill/sortsmill-fonts/downloads/sortsmill-gb1911-2010.07.03.tar.bz2
https://bitbucket.org/sortsmill/sortsmill-fonts/downloads/sortsmill-goudy-3.1.tar.bz2
https://bitbucket.org/sortsmill/sortsmill-fonts/downloads/sortsmill-prociono-2.3.tar.bz2

You should apply the patches in
https://bitbucket.org/sortsmill/sortsmill-fonts/downloads/patches-to-build-fonts-with-sortsmill-tools-2.x.x.tar.bz2
using commands like ‘bzip2 -d < path/to/patch-file.patch.bz2 | patch -Np1’.

Then do the usual GNU Autotools stuff, such as:

./configure --enable-truetype
make -j9

* What follows are old instructions, for building fonts with George *
* Williams’ ‘FontForge’ program. Follow them at your own risk.      *

To build Sorts Mill fonts from Mercurial or Git sources, using the
original FontForge, first go into the 'tools' directory and install
the Sorts Mill Tools 0.4, using something like

    autoreconf --install
    make
    make install

Then, if the desired fonts are far enough along in development, go
into the appropriate directory and once again do something like

    autoreconf --install
    make
    make install

If the desired fonts are not that far along, then I don't know what
you should do. :)
