 GS "writefont" HELP please!

Hi all:-

I am trying to get writefont to work with GS 3.33. I seem to "almost"
have it, but something must be missing. Can anyone give me a hint as to why?

Here is the program I am running:

(unprot.ps) run
unprot
/Helvetica findfont 30 scalefont setfont
(wrfont.ps) run
(myfile) (w+) file writefont

GV startup is : D:\GS33\gswin -ID:\GS33;c:\psfonts -dWRITESYSTEMDICT

WIN command line is: D:\GS33\GSWIN.EXE  
-Id:\gs;c:\psfonts;d:\gs\gsfonts; -dWRITESYSTEMDICT

It quits with the error /undefined in --get--
Operand stack:
 -- notstringval--  --dict:10/10--  fonttype
Execution stack:
  %interp_exit --nostringval-- --nostringval-- ... etc. etc.

If I do a "stack", I get:
fonttype
--nostringval--
--nostringval--

It writes a bunch of stuff into the output file , ending with:

(contents of myfile, ... 60 odd K of stuff.... followed by:)

/Erode{ 11.5 dup 3 -1 roll 0.1 mul exch 0.5 sub mul cvi sub dup mul 88 0
dtransform dup mul exch dup mul add le{ pop pop 1 1}{ pop pop 0 1.5}
ifelse} def
/|-{ noaccess def} def
/|{ noaccess put} def
/BlueValues[ -19 0 718 737 523 538 688 703] def
/StdVW[ 88] def
/ForceBold false def
/MinFeature{ 16 16} def
 end def
/FID

Thanks in advance for any ideas...
