Bitstream Vera has long been deprecated in Fedora in favour of DejaVu, which is a community fork and extension of the Bitsream release. The majority of users will have DejaVu installed on system and pulling Vera in is a waste of resources.
For Fedora 11, please consider changing the fbida deps on bitstream-vera-fonts to one or several of:
Nowadays LGC is only installed for special cases, and people use the full version of the fonts.
The compat packages are transitory and will be gone in F12
Replaced bitstream-vera-fonts with dejavu-fonts-sans-mono in rawhide.
