    sure, if anyone wants me to move this discussion off the list... don't
    hesitate to ask... i've been told off before for moving things off the
    list and now i wait until somebody asks...

    what i do with a fresh install of Abiword.. is clear the font directory,
    and make symlinks from my ghostscript fonts to that directory, then i
    make symlinks from my X TTF folder to the abiword folder. then i delete
    fonts.* and run ttmkfdir then mkfontdir. granted i dont have all lower
    case... does nayoen have a script for doing that? the fonts all work
    fine under the X font server. oh and i also add the AbiWord fonts dir
    into the X font server list and restart X and the font server.... but i
    always get an error about cour.afm font... which is not surprising as
    the ttf one does not end with afm, but is called "Arial.TTF"
