I don't speak Python unfortunately. Anyway, I don't think it is
necessary to create the list at build time for this package. I do not
expect the fonts to change very much, so once the scale file is created,
it will be quite stable. The same applies to the charset entries.

I will contact Walter Schmidt on this one.

I can ask him to do that, but in the meantime we could diverge from
upstream and use this path for Debian. Opinions?
