Bug#962420: /usr/local/share/fonts owned by group staff even if /etc/staff-group-for-usr-local not present

I believe using dh_usrlocal(1) debhelper should do this automatically.


If a directory is owned by root:root, then ownership will be determined
at install time. The ownership and permission bits will either be
root:root mode 0755 or root:staff mode 02775. The actual choice depends
on whether the system has /etc/staff-group-for-usr-local (as documented
in the Debian Policy Manual §9.1.2 since version 4.1.4)
