idem for pagd8r...

You didn't keep the mail of B. Desruisseaux ? essentially his awk
script adds a dotlessj line in the afm, then you run the usual
installation procedure, you have to modify the psfonts.map file to
call the AddDotlessj operator & download dotlessj.pro. It's
unfortunately incompatible with ps2pk, and, without modifying
render.ps with gsftopk (although gsftopk is able to make the bitmap of
this ATM-illegal dotlessj!)
