  Distributions no longer provide .so files -- unless you ask for -dev
  packages, and sometimes those don't exist. This means that dlopening a
  library doesn't work. I think that's really stupid on the
  distibutioner's part. What do they gain by removing the .so file? But
  I won't even try to change their minds. Instead try to open the
  appropriate foo.so.? file if we can't find foo.so  (Not always, but in
  the more important cases).

So either python-fontforge depends on libfontforge or somehow move .so
files to libfontforge1 or add the patch.
