= compatible with linux-fontconfig.

I have no idea -- whatever was in the ports tree a week ago. Here is
what I have, that begins with gn*:

	gnokii-0.6.8,1 gnomemimedata-2.4.2 gnupg-devel-1.9.19
	gnome-icon-theme-2.10.1_1 gnomevfs2-2.10.1_1 gnomehier-2.0_7

The installed fontconfig is 2.2.3,1. My linux_base is, indeed, not
default -- linux_base-rh-9. The default one is just too outdated.

= About which part of the change are you talking?

I'm talking about considering Fedora Core a continuation of Red Hat.
The rpm installed by the current version of linux-fontconfig is 2 years


= Don't add the master site here, it should be added in

That meant modifying more than one file :-) I'm not a maintainer of this
stuff, I'm just reporting what works and what does not work for me.
