Installing the prerendered Fonts

If freetype is in use, the only advantage of prerendered fonts is that they are faster. Install them like this:

install -d /usr/share/mplayer/font &&
tar -xvf ../font-arial-iso-8859-1.tar -C /usr/share/mplayer/font &&
for i in /usr/share/mplayer/font/font-arial-<size>*
do ln -s $i /usr/share/mplayer/font; done


Last line creates self referring links.  Surely some mistake.  I think
the last 2 lines should not be there at all.
