If the xfs config file (/etc/X11/fs/config) contains an entry like:
then when chkfontpath tries to add /path/to/new/font/dir to this, the
resulting entry is (note the missing comma on the first line):
catalogue = /path/to/new/font/dir
This one bit me when I upgraded to netscape-common-4.72-6 which runs:
/usr/sbin/chkfontpath -q -a /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi
Incidently, are the -q & -a flags to chkfontpath documented anywhere?
