all changes necessary to package new freefont were committed to svn and 
are available in [1].
In [2] I've put the both the deb and udeb files and the images produced
with them (deb_hi.png and udeb_hi.png). As you can see in hi_diff.png
images differ...
hi.txt is the text file I use to render the pngs.

If anything were not clear do not hesitate to ask
