Hi all,

Some of you may have notice some work on the font area.

The goal of this work is to prevent every single font package to act differently
and most of the time not correctly.

The change will be done in multiple steps:
1/ Convert every ports to USES=fonts
2/ Remove @fc and @fontsdir keywords to only keep @fcfontsdir
3/ Move all fonts from ${LOCALBASE}/lib/X11/fonts to ${LOCALBASE}/share/fonts in
order to make the fonts following XDG as well as making them working for non-x11
world (wayland for example)

Best regards,
