We need much better error handling and error reporting in these
cases. 

I propose another internal integer: \pdffonterrorlevel.
 0 is the current behaviour, which will just produce warnings :-(
 1 gives an error when a pfb can not be found or a mapfile can
   not be read or something else goes wrong. :-)
