This pdf runs over 12mb (91 pages) so be advised.

Here was my method:
First I collected  the names of all the pfb files in texlive 2007. I
created an index of these names. Then I matched the records in
pdftex.map against these pfb files. There were  1,094 matches. I
generated entries in a TeX file for each matched font.  Each entry
consists of the pdftex.map line (in a few cases truncated) followed
by uppercase A-Z and lowercase a-z, at 12pt.

I had one suprise. I knew that most fonts in pdftex.map had no
corresponding pfb files. What I did not expect was that 39 matched
map file and pfb file pairs apparently did not have a corresponding
tfm file. I will investigate this further.

I only looked at Type 1 fonts. There are 22 truetype fonts listed in
pdftex.map. Again I will look further.

I will also reverse my match, and determine how many pfb files (if
