Summary0002549: Include dcpomatic2_cli and dcpomatic2_map in AppImages

Have been trying to figure out how to run DCP-o-matic as CLI from an AppImage build, for purpose of running various versions of DCP-o-matic alongside each other on Ubuntu.

It looks like you can mount the AppImage to a directory without executing the GUI with:

/path/to/DCP-o-matic-2.16.57-x86_64.AppImage --appimage-mount /tmp/mount_XXXX

dcpomatic2, dcpomatic_kdm_inspect and dcpomatic2_verify are present in usr/bin inside the mounted directory, but dcpomatic2_cli and dcpomatic2_map aren't there .

Or am I trying to do something that isn't possible, and AppImage builds aren't suitable for CLI usage?

They should work, those binaries were just missing... they should be there in 2.16.58.
