Thank for the hint.
I started hacking mktexpk myself and found something strange: when I use
gsftopk --mapfile=<my .map file> <fontname> <dpi>
it works fine: I get a nice pk file. But when I add the -t option then
I get no reply at all, weither the font is or not in the .map file
And precisely this test is done in the mktexpk script, no wonder it never
creates any PK font.

Any idea why 
gsftopk --test --mapfile=<my .map file> <fontname> <dpi>
produces no output?
