You should really have the font setup within the AW fonts directory
structure (either in fonts, or in one of the locale specific
subdirectories); you do not have to have a physical copy there, it is
enough to symlink it there from where you have it now, and yes,
you need to have a write permission to that directory. The support
files (.afm, .u2g, .t42) are created only the first time a ttf font is
used by AW; on a system where the access to the font dir is
restricted, the system admin, will have to take care of this.
