CTAN update: mf2pt1
mf2pt1 facilitates producing PostScript Type 1 fonts from a Metafont source file. mf2pt1's advantage over tools such as TeXtrace and mftrace is that it does not rely on bitmap tracing and therefore can produce higher-quality Type 1 fonts than trace-based tools. The catch is that mf2pt1 imposes a number of restrictions on the Metafont input so it is not, as the name may imply, an automatic converter of arbitrary Metafont fonts to Type 1 format. Version 2.7 of mf2pt1 supports new --output-dir and --save-temps options for controlling where intermediate and output files are written and if intermediate files should be retained after execution completes. It also allows helper programs (mpost, t1asm, and fontforge) to be overridden, including with arguments, via environment variables. Thanks to Werner Lemberg for his suggestions for and contributions to this new release.

mf2pt1 – Convert stylized METAFONT to PostScript Type 1
mf2pt1 is a Perl script that facilitates producing PostScript Type 1 fonts from a METAFONT source file. It is not, as the name may imply, an automatic converter of arbitrary METAFONT fonts to Type 1 format. mf2pt1 imposes a number of restrictions on the METAFONT input. If these restrictions are met, mf2pt1 will produce valid Type 1 output with more accurate control points than can be reverse-engineered by TeXtrace, mftrace, and other programs which convert bitmaps to outline fonts.
