Yes, Anthony Wong and I have been thinking of packaging these four new
Arphic fonts (Big5 and GB, Kaiti and Songti), but is currently either
busy or waiting for the new installxfont script (?) I tried the Songti
GB font under Debian's XFree86 3.3.5 (with xserver-s3 and libxfont
3.3.4-2.0.xtt.1 from Debian-JP), and it works GREAT!  :-) I am having
trouble getting the Big5 font to work though.  Perhaps something still
needs to be done about X-TT or XFree86's locale.  And of course,
zh_CN.GB2312 isn't in glibc2.1 in Debian potato yet AFAIK.  Don't know
if we can get it done before November 1 freeze.

If anyone here doesn't mind working to solve these problems within the
next two weeks, we could certainly use the help!  :-)
