Hi Mats, I followed this thread. Basically the t-lettri.tex must be placed in a path known to TeX. Indeed if you place it in \base or \user this is the case. - In earlier discussion I think to remember that one could best create a directory \third (or similar) where such files can be placed.

auto-lettrines (dropcaps etc) are kind of complex in the sense that it's not trivial to pick up the first 'something' in a paragraph in a robust way [we may want some extension to tex for that (so we have something to discuss during our trip to eurotex -) Hans If I may chime in:
