Well with all due respect, but a post like this is neither informative 
nor helpful in any way.

If FOP requires me to extract font metrics from a TTF file with a tool 
supplied by FOP, then FOP should be able to do that automatically by 
itself, AFAICS.
It also should be able to search for required glyphs, in all fonts 
available on the system, AFAICS. (on Windows just scan the typical font 
dir for example)

Now my question was: What technical facts keep it from doing that?
