I tried to install the suite on my PowerBook 17 with 10.4.1 and none of the volumes would accept the installer.

Anyone any thoughts?

The previous versions required that Xcode (the Developer Tools) was installed. I guess the same goes for this version, although the read-me doesn't say so.

If you examine the installer log you may see that there is a problem with running VolumeCheck i.e.
FontTools.pkg/Contents/Resources/VolumeCheck
The problem I had is that this file is not executable, if you set the x permision (I used chmod) the you should be able to install the package.

Followup to the Tip by Michael Salmon, the permissions of two scripts in the Resources folder prevent the installer from working. There will surely be an update from Apple quickly, but until then you can fix the installer by doing the following in Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop/FontTools.pkg # or wherever you d/l'd it to
chmod a+x Contents/Resources/VolumeCheck
chmod a+x Contents/Resources/postflight

It might be fixed in the installer package already, as I didn't have this problem.
