Hello maintainer,

While performing an archive wide checkbashisms (from the 'devscripts' package) 
check I've found your package containing one or more /bin/sh scripts making 
use of bashisms.

checkbashisms' output:
> possible bashism in ./usr/bin/update-nfonts line 24 (echo -e):
> echo -ne "Creating nfonts"
> possible bashism in ./usr/bin/update-nfonts line 31 (echo -e):
>             echo -ne "."

Not using bash (or a Debian Policy conformant shell interpreter which does 
provide such an extra feature) as /bin/sh is likely to lead to errors or 
unexpected behaviours.
Please be aware that although bash is currently the default /bin/sh there's a 
release goal for Lenny to make dash the default /bin/sh[1].

If you want more information about dash as /bin/sh, you can read:

For more information please refer to the Debian Policy section 10.4 supporting 
this argument at:

Hints about how to fix bashisms:
Sometimes these bugs are already fixed in Ubuntu, look at the PTS.
