i put it there because some users asked for it;
also, it's not uncommon in tex distibutions to have tfm/vf files without
accompanying (non free) pfb or ttf files
so, pdftex should ignore entries where a tfm/vf/pfb/ttf/enc file is missing
when handling an inclusion
(even worse, when one replaces a virtual font with a non virtual one and
the doc to be included still has a virtual one, i would not be surprised of
problems showing up as well)
these things happen and i test such things because of user reports -)
