Ah, sorry, my fault. Yes, I forgot to copy *.tfm and only remembered to
copy *.pfb files. Now that I copied *.tfm to
TeX/texmf-local/fonts/tfm/tiqwah and re-run "texconfig init" everything
works fine, thank you!

Now the file tnk.pdf which took 85 minutes to generate in the past is 
generated in just 9 minutes, thanks to TeX Live 2004 on x86_64! :)

Kind regards
