Description Conrad Meyer 2007-09-15 03:46:19 EDT
Description of problem:
Fedora's ImageMagick is configured with --with-windows-font-dir. Fedora 
doesn't ship windows fonts (as far as I know) and when you enable this option 
in configure, programs/libraries that use ImageMagick (RMagick for example) 
may assume that if ImageMagick was configured --with-windows-font-dir, that 
they can directly reference windows font files. (RMagick goes for verdana and 
arial font files (/usr/share/fonts/default/TrueType/verdana.ttf, etc.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Latest (ImageMagick-

How reproducible:
Always (unless windows fonts are installed).
Actual results:
Library (RMagick) using ImageMagick fails to load the windows fonts 
that --with-windows-font-dir implies.

Expected results:
Libraries are not mislead, and Fedora excludes the --with-windows-font-dir 
option as we do not ship windows fonts.

Quick intro: I'm now a comaintainer of ImageMagick, and thus going through all
the open bugs.

This bug is a duplicate of bug 193474, marking as such.

Note this bug is fixed since atleast F-8.
