Not sure if it'll work, but you might open the offending font files in
pfaedit. It should generate at least one of the two files for you...

The pfaedit.sourceforge.net website has links to other font softwares,
at least one of which should autogenerate the fonts.dir and fonts.scale

Hope this helps.
