File writet1.c is shared by pdftex and dvips. The pdftex_fail() function
there is only used by dvips; for pdftex it's provided by utils.c within
The wrong dvips message comes from pdftex_fail() in writet1.c. So one
should change "PDF" into "PS" there.
When i do this change, a call of dvips using a buggy .pfb file gives:
==> Fatal error occurred, the output PS file is not finished!
pdftex gives instead:
==> Fatal error occurred, the output PDF file is not finished!
