Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 38874
fonts.dir is created empty

/usr/share/fonts/default/TrueType/fonts.dir is created empty due to a
suspected bug in the post install script. The fonts.scale file is created
after the fonts.dir, hence mkfontdir doesn't have the fonts.scale file
available for input.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Check the contents of /usr/share/fonts/default/TrueType/fonts.dir
Actual Results: The file is created empty after installing the rpm
Expected Results: fonts.dir should contain a listing of the available fonts.
This was mentioned at one point on the Seawolf mailing list, however it
appears it was never reported to bugzilla.
I've created a patch to the spec file that should fix it.
