I met a bug when configure x-ttcidfont-conf package, too. see below.
Unpacking replacement x-ttcidfont-conf ...
Setting up x-ttcidfont-conf (27) ...
Updating font configuration of x-ttcidfont-conf...

Updating category cmap..
Can't exec "/usr/bin/mkcfm": No such file or directory at /var/lib/defoma/scripts/x-ttcidfont-conf.defoma line 791.
Since mkcfm is removed from X packages because of its license, CID related
function in x-ttcidfont-conf does NOT work now.
And upstream X.org says "CIDfonts are obsolete, so mkcfm is deprecated."
Yes, CIDfonts (and NEWCIDfonts) will be replaced to OpenType format fonts
(if there is OpenType font package in Debian, its name would be otf-<fontname>,
like otf-thai-tlwg package).
- mkcfm is non-free
- X.org think CIDfonts are obsolete
So we should remove CIDfont related code from this utility (and maybe
change its package name(x-tt"cid"font-conf).
If we want to use CIDfont, they upstream says that we convert it to
OpenType or something (however, I don't know how to do it).
