Not much, but I notice there is a program called pktopbm
... presumably you use that to produce PBM bitmaps from PK fonts
... then I'm sure there must be, somewhere, a tool that will create X
fonts from bitmaps.
Another thought that occurs to me is that (assuming your X server/font
server can display Type 1 fonts) there is a package of Type 1 versions
of the standard TeX fonts. Maybe if you contacted the people
responsible for that (info at http://www.tug.org/ or
http:/nwalsh.com/, perhaps?), they could tell you how they did it.
Sounds like an interesting project. Hope it works out.
