Could you elaborate on why you want to load an empty map instead of simply
not initializing anything with a static map?

AMCL is not "combining all the tf together" in any filtering sense - it is
actually generating the odom->map transform! Hence, you do not need to feed
an odom-to-map transform into amcl. In fact, an odom-to-map transform would
be unnecessary if you don't have a map. In that case, there is no need to
run amcl at all.

If you want to build a map on the fly, you should look at the gmapping
package (http://www.ros.org/wiki/gmapping).
