I've uploaded a bump of 'ubuntu-font-family-sources' Source with the
console-font building code uncommented[0][1]:

  $ dpkg -L fonts-ubuntu-font-family-console  | grep psf

This second binary is in addition to the current main
'ttf-ubuntu-font-family' binary.  I would be grateful for advice about
what would be the best name for a renamed main binary package.


[0] Had been waiting on the promoting bitmap handling utilities 
    'otf2bdf' and 'bdf2psf' to Ubuntu 'main'.

[1] A separate package (<20 kB) so that server/embedded systems are
    not dependent upon shipping many megabytes of vector fonts.
