Hm, I don't understand why it isn't installed in a font directory.  It
seems to me that ctan2tds.pl executes, for package, dotype1(), and that

sub dotype1{

   my $otfpatt = $specialotf{$package} || $standardotf;
   &install("$DEST/fonts/opentype/public/$package", $otfpatt);

What I didn't find is how doc files get moved to their destination,
there's not dodoc or such...
