Well, I cannot answer your question exactly, but to get *good* PDF,
you shouldn't be using pk(=bitmap) fonts anyway, so Metafont
shouldn't happen to be called anywhere.

Some questions:

* How do you want to produce the PDF?
* Can you post the "header" (the preamble) of the resulting TeX file?
* What is the exact error message (plus the lines before it)?

Maybe it can't just be corrected with a package (or if it can, the
fix might not lead to the best PDF). In that case, the experts in
comp.text.tex can probably help you better.
