First thing to check (no offense): is the configuration actually used?
I mean: just want to make sure that no one expects the config file to
be picked up automatically. The fop.xconf in the distribution is NOT
used, unless you tell FOP to use it.
(see:
http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/0.95/configuration.html#general-available
)

If you're sure FOP is using the config-file, then try running with
debug output. (Make sure the log implementation is set to debug-level;
simply using the '-d' option is not enough)
FOP is known to choke on some TTF variants. Just because you have a
font available does not guarantee that FOP can handle it. Try locating
the physical font-file, and generate the metrics from it, manually. If
that doesn't work, that explains why the auto-detection code skips
processing the font.


HTH!

Andreas
