These are the sources for blackbord bold fonts in additional sizes
compared to what the bbold fonts (fonts/*/public/bbold) provide. Similar
to EC and CM somming in different sizes. These fonts are used when
mathbbol.sty is loaded instead of bbold.sty, even though I don't quite
understand the difference. Is mathbbol.sty included in TeX Live?

amstex = plain TeX + macros from AMS
bplain = plain TeX + babel support
=> bamstex = plain TeX + macros from AMS + babel support
