Thanks for noticing this. I expect to have Unifont 7.0 ready by the end of June, after the Unicode Consortium formally announces the Unicode 7.0 release sometime in June. I will make these documentation corrections in the upcoming release.

Wed 28 May 2014 01:05:15 AM UTC, original submission:

INSTALL instructs to run this command in order to build a font with PUA code points:

make BUILDFONT=1 UNASSIGNED="" PUA="hexsrc/pua.hex" NONPRINTING="hexsrc/nonprinting.hex"

However, running the command give an error:

make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'hexsrc/nonprinting.hex', needed by 'compiled'. Stop.

If I change "hexsrc" to "plane00", it works.

make BUILDFONT=1 UNASSIGNED="" PUA="plane00/pua.hex" NONPRINTING="plane00/nonprinting.hex"

I grepped for hexsrc and also found some cases in README, doc/unifontpic.texi, doc/unigencircles.texi, font/plane00/README, man/unifont.5, man/unifontpic.1, and man/unigencircles.1.
