I figured out why I wasn't seeing these before.

In my workaday Debian-based environment, I have both "gsfonts" and
"fonts-urw-base35" installed.  In my Debian bullseye chroot, I have only
the latter.

The "gsfonts" AFM files are thus found in preference to the
"fonts-urw-base45" AFM files.

Here is an example of the files in question.

gsfonts: /usr/share/fonts/type1/gsfonts/a010015l.afm
fonts-urw-base35: /usr/share/fonts/type1/urw-base35/URWGothic-Demi.afm

Which one of these should we prefer?  I'll check this assumption, but
I'm guessing the latter have greater glyph coverage and that's why we're
getting gripes from afmtodit about the mappings.
