psfonts.amz is useless. Do you really need this one?

The are all coming from ams/ams-bsr.map and ams/ams-bsr-interpolated.map

I have no idea what these psfonts.amz is used for ...

All light household and electrical goods contain a number of vital
components plus at least one exeter. If you've just mended a fuse,
changed a bulb or fixed a blender, the exeter is the small, flat or
round plastic or bakelite piece left over which means you have to undo
everything and start all over again.
