Adobe Type Manager (ATM), which is used to install the Type 1 fonts,
searches for the PFB+AFM+INF files in the same directory to generate
the PFM file (the latter is generated from AFM+INF, but ATM cannot
install the Type 1 font without PFB being in the same directory as

Given that we already put AFM in a different directory than PFB (so we
cannot achive the result of having PFB+AFM+INF in the same dir without
having to move the files), I'd put INF into in same dir as AFM,
because AFM+INF can be used to generate the PFM file.
