I'm actually working on this at the moment and I've found that if you are 
using debian (or possibly a debian derivative) and have the package "gsfonts" 
installed the attached file solves the problem if you replace the 
one from cvs in font/devpdf.

I am still working on a more robust solution which will stop the make failing 
if the required fonts are not found.
