Since the ttf-dejavu defoma hints result in the following being added
to the fontconfig configuration, the changes in SVN are not enough,
unless you think the hints were wrong in the first place.


If installing a font modifies /etc/fonts/conf.d/30-defoma.conf (which
is a symlink to /var/lib/defoma/fontconfig.d/fonts.conf), then those
modifications need to be added to a file
/etc/fonts/conf.avail/<priority>-<package>.conf and a symlink added in
the /etc/fonts/conf.d/ directory.

In addition, where does rm_conffile come from??
