extracting fonts from a .exe file

I am trying to automate my installation of Ubuntu and ran into a 
problem extracting some ttf fonts from a .exe file.

When I used the file-roller command in a terminal window it worked
fine and extracted the fonts without starting a GUI.  But when I 
run it from a script with no X session active:

  $ file-roller -e . /usr/local/src/dist/ttf31e.exe
  Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused
  ** (file-roller:32627): CRITICAL **: Failed to parse arguments: Cannot open display: 

Is there some command line program available from the usual Ubuntu
repositories that will extract fonts from a .exe file?
Thanks as always...
