  I've tested ttf-inconsolata version 001.009-1, but can't use it yet
on my old Sarge system. I've found that Defoma hints
file, /etc/defoma/hints/ttf-inconsolata.hints, have a typo : it refers
about /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-inconsolata/Inconsolata.ttf file,
but the font file have been renamed with .otf suffix...

  I've tried to unregister / reregister it in Defoma with correct name,
I get now a correct symlink
/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType/Inconsolata.otf, but xlsfonts or xfontsel lists this font with near all parameters to 0, and I can't use a given height for an xterm :

$ rxvt -fn '-*-inconsolata-medium-r-normal-*-15-*-*-*-*-*-*-*'
rxvt: can't load font "-*-inconsolata-medium-r-normal-*-15-*-*-*-*-*-*-*"

  I don't know if I missed an action to do...
