Ah, two consecutive hyphens — I rarely think of that.  I tried all four of "/?", "-?", "/h" and "-h", but none helped.  OK, so I can now build the format; how, please, do I persuade it to save the format file under TEXMFLOCAL and not the (very obscure, and somewhere I would never think to look) default location ?
