Description of problem:
Anaconda is not using Lohit-* font family for Indic languages (Hindi, Gujarati, Odia, Punjabi), (but gnu free Sans/Serif, package 'gnu-free-fonts-*'), so Rendering is effected for those languages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run anaconda (liveinst)
2. Check Language Name (Gujarati, Hindi, Oriya, Punjabi, Malayalam)
3. Rendering is not good as Fonts are Lohit, but gnu-free-fonts
Gun-free-fonts set default in anaconda
default fonts should be lohit for Indic locales

anaconda doesn't use any font in particular; it uses whatever is in the image, which anaconda does not build.
This is a live spin issue, lorax already includes all of the lohit fonts:

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
