On Sat, 29 Jan 2005, Heiko Oberdiek submitted version 1.2 of the package


Short description of pkfix:
  Some PostScript files with bitmapped fonts contain
  comments, added by dvips. Then pkfix tries to find
  the type 1 versions of the font and replaces them.

License: LPPL
Location on CTAN: support/pkfix/

Changes of v1.2:
 * Bug fix: Merging is now based on type 1 names. This
   solves the problem, if different bitmap fonts maps to
   the same type 1 font, eg. (ecrm1000, larm1000) -> SFRM1000.
 * Suppression of PK generation, if environment variable
   MKTEXPK is supported.
 * If output file is "-" (standard output) then messages of
   pkfix are written to standard error output, resulting
   in better pipe support.

Changes of v1.1:
 * Bug fix: embedded encodings are now detected and used.
 * The temporary dvi files are now written directly. Thus
   pkfix does not depend on TeX (but on dvips) and runs

Thanks for the update, I installed it.
