2. ttmkfdir
I believe that some versions of ttfmkdir already recognise iso-10646-1 .
Anyway, a quick hack here is:

  ttmkfdir |sed -e 's/$UNNEEDED_CHARSET/iso-10646-1/' >fonts.dir

where $UNNEEDED_CHARSET can be 'dosencoding-cp437', 'microsoft-cp1251' or
whatever encoding you hope you won't need.

This doesn't change the number of lines in the produced fonts.dir, and
