Comment 1 Jerry James 2008-01-14 23:23:05 UTC
This bug is still present in F-8.  If you'll make the RPM put a symbolic link,
named nethack-fonts perhaps, in /etc/X11/fontpath.d and pointing to
/usr/games/nethack-3.4.3/fonts, then this bug goes away.

Tagged and built for devel.  Thanks!

I'll push this as an update for F8 once I fix up the others as well.
