I've added a new patch and will commit this shortly to the temp_pclsoftfonts 
branch. I will start a vote shortly on merging in this functionality.

> [PATCH] Soft font support for TrueType fonts in PCL
> ---------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: FOP-2486
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-2486
>             Project: FOP
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: renderer/pcl
>    Affects Versions: trunk
>            Reporter: Robert Meyer
>             Fix For: trunk
>         Attachments: patch.diff, patch2.diff, rasterized.pcl, softfonts.pcl
> Currently all fonts (except a limited set of native fonts) are rastered for 
> PCL output. This has the problem of the documents being large in size and 
> should FOP be used in the cloud, rendering to PCL would not be possible as 
> it's using AWT.
> This patch in part resolves this problem by converting TrueType fonts to PCL 
> soft fonts. This allows the size to be much smaller and has been a standard 
> feature since PCL 5.
> [EDIT] For all other fonts which are not TrueType it will still revert back 
> to being rasterized. It will currently default to using soft fonts for 
> TrueType fonts but this can overriden by using 
> <text-rendering>bitmap</text-rendering>.
