thanks for the hint, but i had some problems first getting the ttmkfdir2
package, the url you sent still has the old version as main item. following
a couple of links i finally found a ttmkfdir2 package at
http://people.redhat.com/yshao/, but then your diffs didn't seem to be
referred to those files, i think. googling around i found another ttmkfdir2
package which already included a whole set of patches, and that left me
even more confused... in short, every time i tried "make" it failed with an
error.

so i switched to plan B, and following mainly the detailed instructions
given by Fernando Arbeiza (mit Heinz Kirchmann auch dabei...) i compiled
old ttmkfdir with freetype-1 in a temporary folder. it did compile, haven't
tried it yet since i don't have any ttfonts yet... :-)

i still would like to try the newer ttmkfdir, though. 

tushar, did you have a particular ttmkfdir2 source package in mind? those i
downloaded didn't seem to be very cleanly packaged to my inexpert eyes...

best,

lj
