duplicates of fonts in some packages


I'm packaging adesklets stuff, and it cames with Vera.ttf font included.
We've got this font in ttf-bitstream-vera package, so I was wondering if is
it ok to duplicate it, since some packages are doing it already.

At least that's something what I got after `apt-file search Vera.ttf`.
wesnoth-data and epplets are not a case cause they using symlink to the
font from ttf-bitstream-vera and depend on it.

But widelands-data has its own copy. In addition its copyright file doesn't
mention about different license for this font than for the rest of package.

I assume that symlink is a good way (tm) for such situations, and that
widelands is buggy, but I'm here to ensure myself and maybe others ;)

Also maybe writing some script for finding such duplicates would be
reasonable, it could in addition finds conflicting files in other packages,
but that's only idea ;)
