Metapost will allow you to make a vector outline of the font's glyphs,
it won't directly make a computer font. Metatype1 however, will do
what you want:
But you don't necessarily need to do this --- pdflatex will include a
Metafont as bitmaps, which can be made to be print-ready if need be w/
the appropriate tools.
