Wow, kdebase-2.2, that is /really/ old! =:^)

Thanks.  I actually have the (two, 8x16, 8x8) fonts available, here, but 
they're simply orphaned files.  If I'm to create an ebuild for it, 
finding a publicly available tarball to use for SRC_URI was essential.  
And a kde2 era tarball is likely smaller than a kde3 era tarball.  
Grabbing the whole kdebase tarball for two little files seems rather a 
waste, but might as well make that waste as little as possible! =:^P  But 
I don't know if I'd have thought to go back to kde2 without your post.
