------- Additional Comments From ken.sharp at artifex.com  2009-03-26 04:39 -------
Tested the HEAD revision by adding the following line to fontmap.GS:

/TimesNewRomanPSMT (C:/Windows/Fonts/times.ttf) ; 

Then executing this PostScript:

%!
<</NeverEmbed [/TimesNewRomanPSMT] >> setdistillerparams
/TimesNewRomanPSMT 72 selectfont 72 72 moveto (a) show
showpage

This works correctly. Then added to fontmap.GS:

/Times-New-Roman /TimesNewRomanPSMT ;

and ran this PostScript:

%!
<</NeverEmbed [/Times-New-Roman] >> setdistillerparams
/Times-New-Roman 72 selectfont 72 72 moveto (a) show
showpage

This also (correctly) does not embed the font. 

The font name called for by the PostScript file must be correctly defined; if
you want to use 'Times New Roman' as the font name then you must define it
properly, eg if you want to use spaces:

<< /NeverEmbed [ (Times New Roman) cvn ] >>

Thanks to Leonardo for the investigation.
