Summary: symbolic font gets /Flags as nonsymbolic

Initial Comment:
The input file

\pdfcompresslevel=0
\pdfmapline{psyr Symbol}
\nopagenumbers
\font\sy=psyr
\sy a
\end

results in a pdf with a Font Descriptor with /Flags 34
for the Symbol font, which is wrong; it should be 4.

The flags are initialized as 4 in mapfile.c and
writefont.c sees this as the default value and writes
34 to the pdf.

A fix for this will be included in the next release (1.40.4/1.50.0).

The default might be reasonable, but even setting the
fontflags as 4 (symbol) doesn't work, as this is interpreted
as being the default and changed to 34. :-(
