[pdftex] ttf2afm failure

it seems that `ttf2afm` (1.02) fails to generate afm files properly.
`mkafmmap` from enscript then fails to create a font map apparently
because the Font* attributes values are not prefixed by their proper
names. (I'm using app-text/texlive-core 2011-r5)

$ ttf2afm ~/.fonts/DejaVuSansMono.ttf -o dejavu.afm
$ grep DejaVuSansMono dejavu.afm

while for fontforge [1] generated files, it says:
FontName DejaVuSansMono

After a quick look to [2] it should not be too hard to fix.
