Mf should not be called in the first place, it has nothing to do with
To make a PK font suitable for xdvi from a PostScript font, you need a
program like ps2pk. It is most convenient if this program is invoked
>From the MakeTeXPK script with the right parameters on the right files
at the right time, analogous to how MakeTeXPK invokes Metafont.
The only alternative to ps2pk I know is a program called gsftopk. I
will let someone else explain which is superior -- I use ps2pk.
The proper way to adapt MakeTeXPK depends on your TeX distribution. A
good distribution should take care of all this for you.
There is a discussion regarding the latest version of ps2pk going on
on tex-fonts right now.
