der Mouse's getbdf is one solution; it connects to a server and produces a
BDF file for any font the server is willing to let it.  It can be used as an
anything-to-BDF converter, but requires access to a server that can
understand the font file, thus is both more and less powerful than other
tools such as snftobdf. getbdf is on 132.206.78.1 in X/getbdf.c or available
via mail from mouse@larry.McRCIM.McGill.EDU. [5/91]

In addition, the R5/R6 program "fstobdf" can produce bdf for any font that
the R5 server has access to.
