This is all very preliminary.  The font format is .pfa
(ie. feta20.pfa) they can be located anywhere, as long as
private-fonts points to the right place.  Just do:

   make -C mf pfa
   mkdir ~/.sodipodi
   ln -s $(pwd)/mf/out/private-fonts ~/.sodipodi

you may look into the private-fonts file to see if it makes any sense.

Yes, it's a private font.

What about it?  Even if there's such a thing, I doubt that it can be
of any (but the most simplistic) use.
