Description Leonid Kanter 1999-12-07 15:58:16 EST
There is a line in XFree86-3.3.5 to untar extra encodings from xfsft. Here
is it:

# install xfs encoding descriptions tar x -C
$RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts -f xfsft-1.1.6/encodings.tar

But resulting catalog is not included in any XFree package.

Solution: add following lines to XFree86 %files section

%dir /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/encodings
