That should help. For fontforge, a simple script like

#!/usr/bin/env fontforge

which is called with the font file as argument would do it, if the AFM
file is in the same directory and has the same base name. If not, one
can easily improve the script. The same holds if one wants to convert
many fonts in a single run. It gets more interesting once one tries to
merge also expert fonts, set OpenType features and stuff like that.
