Enscript maintainers added the file in version 1.6.6. I'm leaving this (for now) as low-hanging fruit for newcomers.

Blacklisted in rev. 271 (metad) and 38 (debderiver).

Like enscript, GNU a2ps includes AFM files. Unlike a2ps, enscript doesn't include a license file with them. The license file, MustRead.html, says "... that the AFM files are not distributed without this file; ...". So GNU Enscript is probably in violation of that license.
