Set Foundry Attribute in a Font

Does anyone know of a Linux utility to set the Foundry attribute in a font? I can't even find it listed in FontForge.

Most commercial fonts have the Foundry set (e.g. Bitstream, etc.), but the majority of free fonts don't have a foundry listed and, as a result, the matches returned when a font is missing or needs to grab some characters from another font are really bad choices.

Any help would be appreciated (I don't even know of another font editor for Linux). Thanks.
