not sure why you call it "new" :-} its been around for years.

my tools (CTAN:fonts/psfonts/tools) do all this sort of thing,
- writing map file entries
- running vpl to vf, and pl to tfm
- making .sty files
- adding checksums
the only flaw is that you have to follow my contorted software over
its years of changes. still, the Makefile ought to show how its
used. its largely Perl.
