So simple to say...:-(

Hopefully, the new maintainer of fontforge will cope with that but, in
the meantime, we have a broken ttf-freefont package and, apparently, a
useless fontforge package, the only thing
our upstream is saying is "upgrade to the new version".

Reminds me what's generaly said by some commercial software

Kartik, apparently packaging FF 20080215 is badly needed....
