Permission? There is the font editor included with the toolkit and an example of how to compile them with Open Watcom is in http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/multimedia/fonts/os2pgftr-src.zip.
If you have VisualAge or perhaps other native OS/2 compiler, they should support creating bitmapped fonts as well. At least VisualAge also has fontedit.exe.
Alex may know of other tools.

Another possible option for adding hinting to TTF fonts is https://www.freetype.org/ttfautohint/index.html. Needs building.

Out of curiosity, is there a font editor that would allow the default 9.WarpSans font to be edited to make it appear as an 11.WarpSans, or 15.WarpSans, etc?  That way no system settings need changed, just drop in the new font file, reboot, and everything's resized automatically.
