Uh, Jerry, take a look at your path. That's an OS X path being used for a
command that only works on Windows.
I'm sorry I didn't catch this earlier; the thread started by someone
(Kresten Bjerg) who was looking for a way to install fonts on Mac and
Windows, and when Klaus Major brought up the idea of using the 'ext.dll'

Additionally, any external that ends in ".dll" is WIndows only; externals
for Mac usually end in ".bundle".
Soooooo, if you want to try loading fonts on Windows, use ext_loadFont with
a windows path (like "C:/Documents and Settings/All
Users/Desktop/KillerStumps.ttf"). As to loading fonts on OS X, I would
assume you can just copy the file to the proper Fonts directory.
Time to come out of the basement...
