[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#422980: ttf-dejavu: fontconfig error: cannot load default config file

I suspect the source of this bug is the fact that fontconfig is
unpackaged but not yet configured when ttf-dejavu is configured by
dpkg.  I suspect this must be fixed either in fontconfig, making sure
it isn't hooking into defoma before it is configured, or in defoma, by
letting it depend or recommend the fontconfig package to make sure
fontconfig is configured before defoma, and thus before all fonts
depending on defoma.

We ran into this bug in Debian Edu in Etch, giving us false positives
when checking the installation for errors.  See

Happy hacking,
