Description of problem:
I have installed an additional true type font and stored it together with
the TeX file in the same directory.  The true type font gets imported and
the encoding also gets imported but when I start Acroread the file shows
only rectangles and Acroread says that the font uses a "build-in"
encoding.  For other PDF documents it says "custom" encoding.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take a true type font.  I use "swz721be.ttf" and "swz721l.ttf".

2. Get the encoding file.  I use "T1-WGL4.enc".

3. Create the AFM file: ttf2afm -e T1-WGL4.enc -o swz721be.afm swz721be.ttf

4. Create the TFM and MAP file: afm2tfm swz721be.afm -T T1-WGL4.enc | sed
-e "s/</<swz721be.ttf </" > myfonts.map

5. The map file contains the following line: swz721be
Swiss721BT-BoldExtended " T1Encoding ReEncodeFont " <swz721be.ttf

6. Tell pdftex about the map file: echo "map +myfonts.map" >>

7. Rehash ls-r: texconfig rehash

8. Write simple LaTeX file:
\DeclareFontShape{T1}{slg}{b}{n}{<-> swz721be}{}
normal font {\usefont{T1}{slg}{b}{n}new font}

9. Run it with pdflatex:  pdflatex testfnt.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-13d (Web2C 7.3.1)

As you can see the font and the encoding gets imported.  But without

Actual Results:  Acrobat shows only rectangles for each letter of the new
font and says about the imported true type font that it has an built-in

Expected Results:  Acrobat should show the right text and say that the true
type font has a custom encoding.
