The 'old version' of pdftex had problems with including pdf files that uses 
fonts not present on the system (well, my system):

   Font \csname\endcsname=uplr8y not loadable: Metric (TFM) file not found.

the new (djgpp) version still has:

   : invalid font dict type <null>

the last couple of days i switched to map files with FontNames again, but i 
regret that move already.

I'm puzzled because i thought that Hartmuts code took care of that.

I need to make a decision: either ship with or without FontName entries in 
map files; (i never had problems without them, but since it was mentioned 
that inclusion was more efficient with them...)

Is it possible to provide


that 'ignores' the font name entries in map files?
