I created mfdcfnt a long (half year) while ago because of copyright issues.
Somehow the upload I did that time failed because of bad checksum.  I uploaded
dpkg a that time to adapt to the new source format, but I can't build pkgs
ever since becuase of some stupid WIF_SIGNALED or so.  A while later I switched
jobs and now I don't have so much time to do debian work, however the problem
with not being able to build packages was never solved, but it seems to be
a very local issue on my system only, but I can't trace it.

Because of the above I gave away all my packages for adoption, some where adopted
some weren't.  I don't know wheter tetex-base is in non-free, otherwise it may
NOT come with the dc fonts because of copyright issues.  I stronlgly suggest 
that this is solved and that the mfdcfnt package is revived. Unfortunately 
I still can't create such a package.
