Fot the sewer.ttf, ttmkfdir will skip it:

[root@localhost ttmkfdir2]# ./ttmkfdir
Warning: Can't initialize Face : sewer.ttf(2)
Warning: Can't initialize Face : aaa.ttf(85)
[root@localhost ttmkfdir2]# ftview ppem sewer.ttf
could not find/open any font file
  error = 0x0002
[root@localhost ttmkfdir2]#
