It'd be nice to move all of the fonts stuff to font.eclass. Right now we have two similar-but-not-quite font systems that tend to do the same thing but drift apart sometimes in incompatible ways. But I know I don't have time to do it and it seems to work well enough right now, so meh. ;)

Hmm, I don't see it in x-modular. It shouldn't be required for non-fonts unless something in git needs it for some wacky reason. remove_font_metadata() { if [[ ${FONT_DIR} != Speedo && ${FONT_DIR} != CID ]]; then einfo "Removing font metadata" rm -rf "${ED}"/usr/share/fonts/${FONT_DIR}/fonts.{scale,dir,cache-1} fi } Sorry, I forgot I was going to follow up on this.. FONT_DIR is a space-separated list of directories. The only example of a font with multiple directories I know of is font-misc-ethiopic. In that case, the command run here would be: rm -rf /usr/share/fonts/TTF OTF/fonts.{scale,dir,cache-1} :/ cleanup_fonts(), create_fonts_scale(), and create_fonts_dir() are similarly broken with multiple directories. create_fonts_scale() { if [[ ${DIR} != Speedo && ${DIR} != CID ]]; then I think you mean ${FONT_DIR} here. Honestly, you might consider dropping TTF from font-misc-ethiopic and only install the OTF version. It would simplify things greatly. -- fonts, by design, by neglect gcc-porting, for a fact or just for effect wxwidgets @ gentoo EFFD 380E 047A 4B51 D2BD C64F 8AA8 8346 F9A4 0662
