[pdftex] Embedding a font to use it in a form

It should work to fully embed a font (no subsetting) by using <<foo.pfb
in the map file entry instead of <foo.pfb.  This is tersely discussed in
the pdftex manual under "fontfile", page 11 in the pdftex-a.pdf that is
in TeX Live 2015.

However, I have no knowledge of how to specify a font for use in text
field forms.  Maybe someone else here (Heiko, Martin ... ?) can help.
