That can't get us what those that come with the tarball can, whithout any
need of depend on all those things after print/p5-type1inst, including X11.
The main objection to the tarball fonts.scale was the extrange mixture
between URW and Adobe names.
The first solution was use sed, but seems to be a extrange interaction
between sed and make in FreeBSD-5.x (It works on FreeBSD-4.x).
I don't expect major changes to this port, so I prefer use a hand-teawk
fonts.scale with Adobe foundries and families where required.
I someone can analyse or solve the make/sed problem (The second sed
command always get a NULL file), I may rework in the original form.
But with all X11 apps going to libXFT, I think that it isn't a real need.
