Note that most of the additional stuff is no longer necessary since
the corresponding files (TFM and map files) have been added to
TeXLive.  However, there was *a lot* of development on the MetaPost
side, and I have to find out how things work today.  I guess that
essentially nobody is using the troff interface, which might be the
reason for not working correctly.

I will investigate but I can't promise when I'm done.  Additional eyes
