I’m sorry to have caused this. Could you please be more specific about
where and how those files are used?

Unfortunately, the upstream no longer provides hinted files, and even in
the previous release the hints were outdated, so anything depending on
the presence of those files should stop depending on them and instead
depend on the unhinted fonts.
