I've just tested with Nimbus Sans L (V 1.05) and kerning works just fine for
those combinations for which there is data in the AFM, with PDF and PS. The AFM
I have doesn't have kerning info for “YÆ” or “Fø”. Maybe you just expect
characters like "A" and "Æ" to be equivalent, but I don't remember any mention
in any of the Type1-related specs where it is listed which glyphs are
interchangeable concerning kerning. Take "AY" and "ÆY": this combination can
definitely not be the same as the font shapes are quite different.

Not even OpenOffice does this kind of kerning, not even with Arial or any other
font I've checked. So IMO, it's a bit much to say it "doesn't work at all".
