Hah!  Good.  Thank you.  Turns out I have pnmstitch on my system but
no manpage so apropos didn't turn it up.  Feh.  Found the manpage on
the net.  A first try on 2550 by 3507 PMB images with 90% or more
overlap failed miserably but there's probably a way to make it work by
scripting the PBMNet tools.

Hm, okay...google-dy-google...

astronomy and medical imaging that's meant to cope with way harder
problems than mine.  These people:

run at my problem with pnmstitch before exploring any  big software
