FontForge can do it very easily with python scripting:
$ git clone git://github.com/rbmntjs/open-baskerville.git
$ cat > ufo2ttf.py << EOF
import fontforge, sys
fontIn = sys.argv
fontOut = sys.argv
thisFont = fontforge.open(fontIn)
"PfEd-comments", "PfEd-colors", "PfEd-lookups", "PfEd-guidelines",
$ python font.py open-baskerville/OpenBaskerville.ufo ob.ttf
Then you have ob.ttf to do with what you will.
