I don't really know the details, but it seems that there exists(ed)
Adobe Type Manager for unix (at least for Solaris), which might use
pfm files too.

True, but information contained in PFM files is limited, and doesn't
allow to restore all information which was contained in the AFM file
from which that PFM files was created. E.g. it lacks info about glyphs
not present in the "active" encoding (and about kerning involving
those glyphs).
