How do you get abcm2ps to put Scandiwegian characters in tune titles?

Umlauts are fine. But it doesn't recognize the TeX escapes in the ABC spec for circle-A and crossed-O, in either lower or upper case. Nor does it recognize those characters when I simply put them in the source.

BarFly gets this more nearly right, but its print quality isn't up to what I need.

I know next to nothing about ABC but I downloaded an ABC file of 'Det var en lørdag aften' to play with. Using abcm2ps-8.13.16 (2017-10-24) on Linux.

It contained '\o' for ø but abcm2ps displayed just o

If I replaced it with the character ø - that worked.

I found a document here (pdf)which gave '\/o' for 'ø' and that worked too.

'\aa' works for å

\aa for ? doesn't work in either of the versions I can use (the one installed with BarFly or the one mandolintab.net uses).

I downloaded it from GitHub and compiled it.

Seems unlikely, but is it conceivable that the font it's outputting doesn't have an å. Mine outputs Times-Roman by default (abcm2ps -H)
