Debian's pygame package removes the original freesansbold.ttf file in
pygame's source and symlinks it to a system copy of freesansbold.ttf
(/usr/share/fonts/truetype/freefont/FreeSansBold.ttf) during the build
process (via an override target). This is why the python-pygame
package depends on ttf-freefont.
