I haven't tried the fontforge-20080828, but till now we not had this
problem with mensis-070609. But with the recent version of the mensis
(080507) I also could not compile Mensis without installed the
libfontforge first.

So, I also had suggestion to split our fontforge source package into
four source packages with the corresponding binary packages:

fontforge -> fontforge, libfontforge1, fontforge-dev, puthon-fontforge
(and maybe fontforge-nox);

fontforge-doc -> fontforge-doc;

mensis -> mensis.

fontforge-extras -> fontforge-extras (for the encodings.ps, cidmaps and

This will make the maintaining easier and the packages will be build
from the upstream tarballs (now we ourselves make the .tar.gz file from
three upstream .tar.bz2 files). But this is very big changes and must be
agreement between all our team.
