Not 100% correct. mktexpk calls gsftopk with the -t (same as --test)
and this reads the same map files as dvips -Pgsftopk would do.

gsftopk -t just returns an exit code which mktexpk uses to decide
whether gsftopk supports a given font or not.

gsftopk --test is supposed to produce no pk file.

Look at the return code of gsftopk, in bash e.g. with
  echo $?
to see which answer gsftopk passes to mktexpk.

Use KPATHSEA_DEBUG=4 (environment variable) to see which files gsftopk
really reads.
