I would say that you should make your changes as a patch to the "preferred
form of modification", in this case the Ubuntu-Title.sfd file, and
re-generate the ttf during build using fontforge.
Other possibilities could be to uuencode your binary patch and apply it during
build (uudecoding it and using patch --binary) or repack the tarball (that
would be fine for personal use only though).
