The flag is removed from pfbtopfa and wftopfa scripts by the rev.

Good conversion from TrueType to PFA is rather difficult. TrueType uses a
program that does hinting and, sometimes, completely rearranges the glyph
outline. Type 1 fonts use declarative hints.

OpenType font can contain TrueType tables or CFF tables. The latter can be
converted to PFA but Ghostscript doesn't provide any tools to do this.
