comes from ctan fonts/niceframe, which is a set of type 1 versions of
fonts "recommended by" the niceframe package.

this is the sort of thing we'll commonly agonise over on the ctan list
and (almost always) install as submitted.  the problem is that the fonts
that rolf niepraschk converted come from all over -- bbding, dingbat,
karta and umrand packages.

i'm just installing catalogue cross-links to the type 1 fonts from the
font packages they came from.  probably doesn't help much, but there's
not much can be done :-(
