Fop is looking for a Type 1 binary (pfb) file.
I have no idea why fop can't find your font metrics file.

TTFReader requires a unicode CMap in the font, many barcode fonts are
broken. You can add a cmap to the font yourself using font software, e.g.
Microsoft Volt (http://www.microsoft.com/typography/creators.htm)

Another alternative is to use svg to create barcodes. This issue has been
discussed earlier in this list and I vaguely remember that someone posted
a good svg solution (or pointer to) for barcodes - better search the list

Solution to this has also been posted to the list recently - maybe this
should enter the documentation and/or faq?
