XFree86 obsoletes XFree86-ISO8859-2 + XFConfig dead symlink

... maybe include the remaining XFree86-ISO8859-2 fonts in
XFree86 (/usr/share/fonts/ISO8859-2/misc) and obsolete
the XFree86-ISO8859-2 package ...
I removed all the 3.3.x stuff from my system. The symlink
ln -snf ../../../../etc/X11/XF86Config
is now dead ... I'm using
ln -snf ../../../../etc/X11/XF86Config-4
(btw: thanks for the Xpilot optimizations ... together with the
ISDN-kernel changes in 2.2.19preX (unsupported ;-) this is the
first ever playable version via ISDN ... :-)
I rechecked the ISO8859-2 fonts and it looks like the stuff in
/usr/share/fonts/ISO8859-2/misc is already included in
So a "Obsolete: XFree86-ISO8859-2" somewhere in XFree86.spec
should be safe ..
Putting an Obsoletes line anywhere would not work because the fonts
are split between three subpackages now. Not sure how to handle this one..
The symlink isn't dead unless someone has deleted the file, or at
least it shouldn't be. There is one included in the RPM.
The font thing is not easily resolveable IMHO without increasing complexity
significantly for no real major gain, and at the risk of hosing RHN.
