Binary for OS X is available with PfaEdit or rather FontForge. X11 is
required. There's a non-X11 package but anyway...

Hiya Séamas ;-) I'd like to recommend you to try Unicode Font Info if
you have not.
On OS X, you can extract cmap table -- "code points" -- and other
tables from a font by ftxdumperfuser included in Apple Font Tools.
Released in Jaguar days but work fine with Panther.
You can use FontLab as a font viewer having useful features in demo
mode. Dunno about Windows version though.
