Suitable fontconfig scripts can help here.

I use these two scripts to force the autofitter for non-glyf fonts (there is an
open rfe for freetype to replace the type1/cff hinting module with one which
uses the autofit module, but taking advantage of the type1/cff hints; this
would be an excellent project for anyone who wants to delve into font
rasterization techniques) and to set the filtering to match the chosen hinting

Combined with fc code akin to:

<!-- cut here -->
 <match target="font">
   <test name="family">
     <string>VL Gothic</string>
   <edit name="autohint" mode="assign">
<!-- and here -->

one can force the autofitter for some glyf fonts and use the bci for others.
