afmtodit needs to grow an option to look on the system for a textmap file.  It's tedious to make the user provide it as an argument when they're unlikely to alter it.

Or, the option could override the search for the textmap file, and the build process could supply the flag.  That would probably be even better.

That would in turn simplify a shippable groff-install-font script.  See bug #58831.
