Manually ran x3270.sh and ran into a couple of issues that looks like they could use addressing:
First time I ran it, got this:
$ ./x3270.sh
./x3270.sh: line 9: /usr/bin/mkfontdir: No such file or directory

Installed mkfontdir package (need a dependency maybe?), then ran it again
and got this:
$ bash -x x3270.sh
+ FONTDIR=/usr/share/fonts
+ ENCODINGSDIR=/usr/share/fonts/encodings
+ MKFONTDIR=/usr/bin/mkfontdir
+ /usr/bin/mkfontdir -e /usr/share/fonts/encodings /usr/share/fonts/misc
opendir: No such file or directory

I "think" the issue here is that the encoding directory we want is actually
in /usr/share/X11/fonts/encoding instead of /usr/share/fonts/encoding.
Solved this by creating a soft link:
/usr/share/fonts
$ ln -sf /usr/share/x11/fonts/encodings .
/usr/share/fonts
$ ll
total 93

drwxr-xr-x+ 1 v808297 Domain Users  0 Feb 26 08:53 misc/

After these 2 corrections the x3270.sh script ran successfully and 
I was able to rename it to x3270.sh.done

Thanks,
