I had problems with mkttfdir too--it didn't segfault, but I have several
fonts that it fails to include in the fonts.dir.
ttmkfdir works much better for me, but I don't think it's included in a
Debian package. However, its source code and a precompiled binary are
linked to at http://www.spinner.org.nz/linux.php , which also includes
instructions for setting up TT fonts in general.
Basically with ttmkfdir instead of typing "mkttfdir" you'll type these
two commands (in the dir with your TT fonts):
ttmkfdir -o fonts.scale
