I can inform you about the fact that I wrote a small programm just like
gfont called "webbutton" which has the same functionality as gfont
but uses the TTF (truetype font) library and a patched gd-library so that
both PNG as well as GIF images can be generated.
I also wrote a patched version of wml::des:gfont called ttfont which
can be used in (nearly) the same way as gfont.

So if somebody is interested I could make a nice tar package out of it
and distribute it.
