In bug #218288, it was brought to our attention that
media-fonts/sharefonts, which has been in our tree under a
public-domain LICENSE, is anything but.  Each of the fonts in this
collection is released under a variety of restrictive or non-free
licenses, the majority being shareware licenses that require the user
to make payment to the author for continued use (usually $5 after 30
days).  Many of these fonts are also crippled with the full version
available for a fee.

As such, I've masked sharefonts for removal in 30 days.  There have been
no new releases since it was added to portage in 2002, and no changes
excepting keywording since 2004, so I'm hoping this doesn't impact too
many people.  I apologize to those it does.
