Coming into this late: but the manpage for gropdf says different: "Only
 the  first
         download file encountered in the font search path is read.  If in
         doubt, copy the default download file (see section “Files” below)
         to the first directory in the font search path and add your fonts

If Deri says it looks for *all* the download files, then that must be
correct! But is the manpage out of date then?
