And this one:
bm #46;
is annotated as ECE3.1020
Online tablebase files show the mate is correct, but I do not have the full path.

Have you got by any chance 6-man Nalimov EGTB downloaded? If that (I guess that KBNPkr and KQBNkr are enough), Chest 5.2 has an option in SearchMode called EgtbAnalysis that should work. However, I do not know if it only shows a single path or all of them, like a tree of mainlines... since the winning Ke5 has two optimal black moves in the sense of longer distances to get checkmated (..., Rb6 and ..., Kh8), and more equal optimal moves later by both sides.

This online 6 man Nalimov site:

Says Rf4, Rg4, and Rh4 are mate in 36
Ke7 Kf8, and Kf7 are mate in 38

all other moves draw or lose.

Oops, wrong position, that was for this one:
4K3/8/3r4/1Pk5/2P1R3/8/8/8 w - -

For this position (6k1/8/r2BK2P/6N1/8/8/8/8 w - -), the same site says:
Ke5 is mate in 46, Ke7 is mate in 48, Kd7 is mate in 52 and all other moves draw.
