bitstream-vera has been part of the X distribution since XFree86 4.3.0.
Instead of using the distribution-supplied bits (which should be exactly
the same), I used our existing port. You're the second person to report
this issue with www.freebsd.org and bitstream-vera, but it's also what I
use and I don't see any problems. Not sure what to say here.
