In order to use installed ms-ttf font package [and AFAIU any font package 
instatted through pkgsrc] in Linux emulation apps i need to add the following 
line into /emul/linux/etc/fonts/fonts.conf:


Two obvious cases when i need it is Acroread7 or OpenOffice2-bin packages. Of 
course sometimes i forget to add this fix and it takes some time for me to 
recall what and where should be added.

IMHO it's a good idea to automatically add default pkgsrc fonts path into 
suse_fontconfig so for example ms-ttf fonts are enabled by default in gtk2 
based Linux packages without any additional hacks, what do you think?
