Hopefully this will be resolved eventually or else it will probably bite
the other distributions you run. It appears it is a fontconfig 2.2
bug/feature of some sort. It seems to refuse to even cache many bitmap
fonts. Also, Qt currently has a bug that allows it to still see fonts
that XF86Config-4 knows about but it can't use them, so you may see some
strange font substitutions. The new Qt can't go into sid yet due to some
dlopen bug in glibc 2.3.1, so it is having to wait on glibc 2.3.2 to be
uploaded first.  If you just use truetype fonts instead though it should
work fine.
