Derive glyph bounding boxes by building PK file

The author found that AFM files generated by pfm2afm lacked glyph bounding box information, so that they are not much use for generating TFM files. This package proceeds by generating a PK file from the Type 1 font by use of ps2pk, and then using information from that to generate a more nearly valid AFM file from the original.
