I'm trying to install new proprietary TTF fonts (helvetica neue) for 
use with pdflatex under freebsd 6.1.
In doing so, I'm following the 
many docs on the subject found either under the fontinst and fonts dir 
of texmf-dist or in the internet (plenty & somewhat misleading docs, 
indeed)  but many important files seem to be missing in the latest fbsd 
tetex package. 
To start with I cannot find the encoding the encoding 
T1-WGL4.enc file needed by ttf2afm.
Also seem to be far at bay ttf2pfm 
and ttf2pk binaries required, e.g., by the ttf2tex procedure.

Am I out 
of the right way?
Am I missing something?
Please help
