Hi Karl!

Now I found some strange rasterization problem with this change. I do 
not know where the problem is, but when I set enc file, then sometimes 
font in output PDF file is "pixelized" and looks ugly.

Simple test case with standard cmr10 font:

\input glyphtounicode
\pdfmapline{} % disable all Type1 fonts
%\pdfmapline{cmr10 <8r.enc}
\font\fg=cmr10 at 60pt
\ff Test
\fg Test

If fourth line is commented then output in PDF file looks good, but has 
no enc vector and no /ToUnicode.

If fourth line is uncommented, then font at 60pt in output PDF file 
looks very very ugly (looks like wrongly rasterized), but has enc vector 
and /ToUnicode.

Any idea why inclusion of enc file for PK font cmr10 change 
rasterization for those big fonts at 60pt?

I was able to see this problem only for such big fonts e.g. at 60pt. For 
small/normal size it looks ok.
