Background of my question is the need of Type 1 font files which cover
most of the European Unicode scripts for the usage in CUPS.

In some FAQ I read:


9.2. Type 1 Fonts and Metafont
9.2.1. Dealing With Mac and Windows Formats
Many foundries ship fonts with Windows and Mac users in mind. This can
sometimes pose a problem. Typically, the ``Windows fonts'' are fairly
easy to handle, because they are packed in a zip file. The only work to
be done is converting the pfm file to and afm file (using pfm2afm)....

That's why the question:
