Yes. The 'ttmkfdir' utility can detect many more encodings than
'mkttfdir'. For example, the fonts.scale generated with 'ttmkfdir'
contains 1190 entries, while the fonts.scale generated with 'mkttfdir'
only 151 (only iso-8859-1 encoding -- it probably creates the Japanese
encodings, but that's probably all).

The 'ttmkfdir' package (a bit old) could be downloaded from
http://hell.pl/baran/tek/linux/debian/ttmkfdir. I ITPed it once, some
time ago, and requested for sponsoring (along with some other
packages). Probably nobody found this package usable enough to sponsor
