RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for fontimport (redhat section 1)

fontimport(1)				      teTeX				    fontimport(1)

NAME
       fontimport - import fonts into the teTeX directory structure

SYNOPSIS
       fontimport [-d] [-f] [-t] [-m MF-mode] path ...

DESCRIPTION
       fontimport  imports  TFM  and PK font files into appropriate places in the teTeX directory
       tree and revises teTeX's filename database accordingly.

       Each path may be a font file or a directory, either absolute or relative  to  the  current
       directory.   All  subdirectories  of a given directory are searched for font files.  Don't
       specify directory names that are symbolic links, however, since (at  least  some  versions
       of) find(1) won't dereference them.

       A  font's  destination  is  determined  by  variables  in the file texmf.cnf.  By default,
       fontimport will issue a warning to stderr instead of overwriting an  existing  font  file.
       The -f flag forces overwriting.

       fontimport  can cope with font names conforming the 8.3-namescheme, too, so you can import
       fonts from either a TDS-compliant or MSDOS installation. emTeX's font  libraries  are  not
       supported.  If  you  want  to import fonts from a font library, you need to unpack it with
       emTeX's fontlib utility first.

       The full pathname of each font successfully imported is echoed to stdout.  When fontimport
       can  not  parse a font's name, it will import the font using a path element of "/unknown/"
       and issue a warning on stderr.

       fontimport tries to guess the mode of PK files.	With the -m flag you may specify a  fall-
       back mode to be used if the mode can't be guessed.

       Options:

       -m MF-MODE
	      default Metafont mode for PK files if autodetection fails
       -d delete
	      delete font files after copying (i.e., move them)
       -f force
	      overwrite existing fonts
       -t test
	      just echo each font's destination (if any); don't move or copy
