If somebody need a fix now, I've put a patch for this (which also
includes a hack for three-letter ligatures) at


I've also extracted ttf2afm from pdfTeX and put it on the same page.
This version of ttf2afm doesn't require any TeX-specific libraries, it
doesn't insert empty lines into the generated AFM files, and it starts
them with "StartFontMetrics" instead of "Comment", so that they should
be usable with Lout without further editing.
