Does this make XDV files non-portable?  It may be that getting the correct
font, in the usual case of the XDV being generated and used immediately
through a pipe on the same machine, is important enough that this is the
Right Thing to do.  But I am currently generating and using XDV files in
separate steps on a single machine, and it's not hard to imagine someone
wanting to do those in separate steps on separate machines.
Device-independent files are no longer device-independent if they're tied
to one host's filesystem.
