Sorry, i can't.

Another way is to use PS fonts. I have slightly modified gFont to allow
a syntax similar to psfonts.map. For instance, i added the line
  HelveticaBoldOutline    ps:phvb8r Helvetica-Bold "/PaintType 2 store TeXBase1Encoding ReEncodeFont" <8r.enc
in the Fontmap file.  One could try
  prompt$ gfont -F HelveticaBoldOutline-24 'OUTLINED'

Any line which is valid in a .map file could be written after the
``ps:'' delimiter.

There is still no way to specify such commands on the command-line.

Any help to provide useful Postscript commands will be great, i am not
very fond of those type 1 fonts.

Thanks to John Bazik, distributions are now smaller because compiled
fonts are removed.
A new alpha release is at
