The problem here seems to be that the character code (32) isn't followed by
a space, which confuses fontinst's AFM parser. I'll have to check the AFM
specs to be sure, but since I haven't ever seen this problem before it
appears likely that this space is mandatory, in which case your AFM file is
malformed. Replacing all semicolons with space+semicolon should render it
