Now speaking for MYself, I last week used fontinst for the first time to
get some pfb/afm combination to go which I had converted from a windows
ttf font. The documentation of fontinst was very good in my opinion! It
got my job done anyway.

This I haven't worked out yet. You end up with 2 tfm files. Which one to
use? They were not the same if I remember correctly. I only ran vptovf
and used those tfm files. Or is that the reason why the inter-character
spacing was completely stuffed (which I blamed on ttf2pfa and ttf2pt1)?
