Hi, all.
I think we should consider about our ttf pkg's location of installation.
I suggest to install them into new directory:
/usr/pkg/share/fonts/TrueType/ (or truetype/, TTF/, ttf/ ?)
For example, if someone wants to install ttf for ghostscript and he doesn't
have X on his system, thus USE_X11BASE=yes will be pain to him.
If we install ttf into /usr/pkg/share/fonts, then we can use these fonts well
both with ghostscript and X.

Any comment?

ps. please CC me, thanks!
