This might be more pango fallout:

Ouch - I was wondering where all the funny unicode encodings in firefox
came from...

Guess we should back out that update (or create alternatives).

I reply to this old thread... did we do any progresson this?

I just finished upgrading everything on my NetBSD laptop - current kernel, Userland, X and all pkgsrc!

I am still "bitten" by this. The cancer of missing fonts makes WindowMaker unusable, but actually bites manny applications: browser, emacs.. something only few characters are off.

Or do I miss "fonts" ?
