15 The AbiWord ebuild should definitely not modify the XF86Config file.
16 However, if xdpyinfo can be used, the installation process should issue a
17 warning when it doesn't find Type1 support in the running X server
18 (it should perhaps also come with a warning if it doesn't find the X
19 server running, and tell the user to check for Type1 support manually)..
