Re: Shipping Vera with 2.4

It will suck completely - it breaks i18n among other things because Vera
isn't suitable for all languages. But also it means gnome apps and other
apps don't have the same default font.

The default font is "sans-serif" period, and always will be.  If people
want default sans font to be Vera, they need to configure fontconfig as
such. fontconfig could come that way out of the box, that might be nice.

So this is another "unsolvable above the distro level" problem... Great. :)
Well, possibly performing an edit on the sysconfdir/fonts/local.conf file during "make install" might be a better idea, then (maybe with a configure option to turn this behaviour off?).
