Well in this case and if one font contains all the chars you want to
use I would suggest to simply use the brute force method:
1. generate a tfm from the raw font with afm2tfm
2. Write an .enc-file which lists the chars you want to use in the
3. generate with afm2tfm a reencoded tfm which use this .enc
4. Write a map-file with the line
newtfm fontname " encodingname ReEncodeFont "
You can find more details in the documentation of chessfss (where I
describe how to reencode chessfonts).
