Bug#1214: new xfntscl postinst broken...

Package: xfntscl
Version: 3.1.2-1

If you do a ``dpkg --install xfntscl-3.1.2-1.deb'', it will correctly
unpack the fonts, and then tell you ``Setting up xfntscl ...'' indicating
that it's about to run the postinst script.

At this point you get the output:

Running mkfontdir in ... /var/lib/dpkg/info/xfntscl.postinst: /usr/bin/X11R6/bin
/mkfontdir: No such file or directory
/var/lib/dpkg/info/xfntscl.postinst: /usr/bin/X11R6/bin/mkfontdir: No such file
or directory

Looking at the output (and at the postinst script), you can see that an
extra /bin snuck its way into the path to mkfontdir -- in order to be
consistent with the postinst scripts for xfnt75 and xfnt100, this should
be /usr/X11R6/bin/mkfontdir (as opposed to /usr/bin/X11/mkfontdir which
refers to the same script).
