This silences the warning about missing metric information when no afm is available but a pbm is installed in the same directory as the pfb file. It would be great if you could check whether this works for you. I did some tests here, but just using the good old cmr10
Just for the record:
PCTeX has provided AFMs for MTPro2 meanwhile, as generated from
Those from Fontographer are remarkably similar to those generated by
pf2afm (from pfb+pfm), but differ in FontBBoxes and very few metrics
(mostly for "space").
Everything works OK with the pfm fallback from 3234 also.
