when processing the output of pdflatex containing TT fonts with
GhostScript it complains about a missing encoding.

File palatinox.pdf has been generated with pdflatex 1.40.3 from MiKTeX
2.6 Beta 3 (code below).

The same warning is raised with pdflatex 1.30.6 form MiKTeX 2.5 and with
other TTFs.  File palatinox2.pdf seems to be ok.  And it's a warning
only.  Should I care about that?
