This package has been renamed to "fonts-paktype" recently. I did the
rename work but, indeed, the package is team-maintained in the
pkg-fonts team SVN.

Can you point us to the new release? As Sebastian (Eremit7) pointed,
the URL we had up to now for upstream source is no longer working.

Once this settled, we can import the new upstream files (apparently
only two TTF files.....but if you had "source code" handy, for
instance as SFD files, that would be great). Then rebuild the package
with these new upstream versions.
