AFDKO under Linux

Ladies & Gentlemen,

I'm a happy user of FontForge under Linux. I'd like to try out Adobe's autohinter just for the fun of it. Back in the day, Thomas Phinney announced it'd be available for Windows, Mac and Unix. It seems that this is not true -- at least I was only able to find Windows and Mac versions.

Wine allows me to run autohintexe, but when passing any files to it (OTF or PFA/AFM) I get error messages like "Error. Illegal command line. Must provide font info file name." or "ERROR: Bad file format. Unknown operator: dict in character."

If anyone ever got this to work, or if I'm doing something totally wrong, I'd be thankful if you could share your wisdom!
