x3270-x11 rpm has corrupt fonts(3270*).

Description of problem, bug, incorrect information, or enhancement request:
Installed x3270-x11 rpm... tried to use x3270 with a font size, got a message
saying "Font is not availible..." or words to that effect.
Did a LOT of digging, finally did a ls -al /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/3270*,
every one of the fonts has a size of 20 where the real ones are bigger. Had the
old fc3 partition that I use to copy the real ones over to the FC4 and now x3270
finds the fonts.
I just downloaded the .src.rpm that builds this x3270-x11 and did a rpm -ba of
the spec file and the resultant x3270-x11 .rpm file has the correct fonts.
Sounds like someone needs to do a rebuild of the rpm to make sure that it has
the correct fonts in it.
That's caused by a missing 'BuildRequires: xorg-x11-font-utils'
fixed in the next version

Just got the new x3270-x11 rpm update and installed it. Checked to make sure it
has the fonts and it does. Loaded the x3270 app and it finds the fonts.
