[blfs-dev] DejaVu Fonts Instructions

Hi all,

In the DejaVu Fonts installation instructions shown on the Xorg configuration
page, the instructions seem to need an update. First, the fonts are now in a
subdirectory of the source directory, so the installation of the TTF files
do not work as shown in the book.

However, the reason I'm asking is that there are .conf files shipped in the
tarball that are designed to be installed in /etc/fonts/conf.d, yet there is
no instruction to install them. Are they required, or do they help fontconfig
in the use of the DejaVu fonts, or can these files be reasonably dismissed?
