Just out of interest I ran it through gcov:
File 'sfd2ttf.c'
Lines executed:23.50% of 2643

File 'sfd.c'
Lines executed:30.49% of 2089

File 'tottf.c'
Lines executed:51.85% of 2353

And out of 324 functions, 194 aren't being used.

The fonts aren't generated properly for me unfortunately. I am opening
them in gnome-font-viewer; there is a screenshot attached.
