And Mac OS version fonts contain their data in their POST resouce.
Before you use t1utils, you have to covert the fonts to MacBinary or
something like that.  Very very long ago, we could use UnAdobe which
could extract font data from POST resources and convert them PFA/PFB
formats.  But the program can not run current version of Mac OS
because the program runs only 24 bit addressing mode (you need IIci or
same generation Macs).  I ported parts of t1utils for Mac OS 8-9 in
order to convert Mac fonts.  Im' sorry that their documents were
written in Japanese (sorry) but I think that the usage is no so
difficult.  Launch the apprication and then simply choose the target
fonts. If you want to try them, please get following URL.

extpostsit.hqx   Exract POST resource and covert it PFA.
t1utils.sit.hqx  t1asm, t1disasm, t1ascii and t1binary.
