I suppose you could have a metapackage that requires the default set of
fonts (that matches @fonts), and have it be a requirement of either
libX11 or the major toolkits. But having to add the requires per-app would
be wrong, IMO.
Well firefox brought in a number of libraries.
The library that actually chokes seem to be pango, so perhaps that's the
package that should have this metapackage as a dependency ?
