mkpkfontdir is a tool for manipulating TeX directories and
reorganizing them in various ways mimicking (after some
transformations) the organization of your tfm files tree.

mkpkfontdir can generate TDS trees, or mirror and flatten them for
efficient recursive subdirectories searching (by making a pool of
symbolic links that will be searched, for example). It has been
successfully used in  a modified MakeTeXPK, for instance, to put
generated pk files at their "right" place in a structure hierarchy.

It is also a great help for keeping consistency between the tfm and
the pk trees, or simply for putting newly got pk files at their right

mkp­k­font­dir – Ma­nip­u­late TDS di­rec­to­ries for PK fonts

This util­ity is de­signed to place PK fonts in “cor­rect” TDS di­rec­to­ries, pos­si­bly by ref­er­ence to the lo­ca­tion of the cor­re­spond­ing TFM files. It can also flat­ten a tree, for ef­fi­cient search­ing, by mak­ing a di­rec­tory of sym­bolic links.
