fontconfig-2.8.0-1 changes default Monospace font from DejaVu Sans Mono to Baekmuk Gulim

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #546490 +++
Description of problem:
I did a yum update and discovered emacs was using the Baekmuk Gulim font. Code editing needs to be done in a fixed-width font! Baekmuk Gulim is not fixed-width. Directory listings look horrible because the fields are not aligned. I changed my emacs settings back and everything is fine for me now, but I bet a bunch of people will have no idea what font to change back to. I was only able to figure it out because I had an emacs running from before the yum update.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This issue is easily reproducible with fc-match "monospace:lang=en" though, there are two things introduced in 2.8.0:
1. the above command matches lang="ko" too
2. Baekmuk Gulim has been added to the pattern with the strong binding somehow. which has ever been added with the weak binding.

This might be the configuration file issue in 65-baekmuk-ttf-gulim.conf. as I pointed out current behaviour in the list [*1] and due to the issue we have in Bug#518161 too perhaps dunno, comparing the lang with 'ko' behaves wrongly in current implementation of fontconfig at least. modifying like the following works expectedly:

Behdad said he would look into the lang= issues but
maybe we should reassign to baekmuk-ttf at least as
a workaround for f13?

maybe. we could clone this to keep both on track.
I just reproduced the old baekmuk-ttf issue with emacs and removed it,
but I have un-core-dotum-fonts and didn't see a problem with it?
you mean un-core-gulim-fonts?
Hm I thought we already had a baekmuk-ttf-fonts bug but seems not.
Thanks - baekmuk-ttf-fonts-2.2-25.fc13 fixes this problem for me. :)
