I Know. But I can't work a patch  against jdk. No skill on that. I can 
only change the RUN_DEPENDS or make a how-to about making gsfonts the 
only URW type1 fontpack and revert the changes.

We are using URW Type1 fonts from three different sources and it seems 
it matters to fontconfig (to closer fonts).

So I'm trying to get only one source, gsfonts. I think it is now closer 
enought to the URW fontpack from gimp to work.

I'll wait for and XFree86-4.4, so I can wait for jdk.

I can't mail to (my ISP fault). Can you forward this to 
java@ if needed.

Thanks for your time,
