Package: defoma
Version: 0.11.8-0.1
Severity: important

In the ch3.html file in /usr/share/doc/defoma-doc/defoma-script.html,
it says:

On register command, the hints must be parsed to pick out Location
and FontName hints.  parse_hints_start() is used for this purpose.
This function converts hints stored in an array to a hash.  For more
detail, please refer the manpage of Defoma::Common.

If these necessary HintTypes, Location and FontName are not found,
the script returns non-zero to tell defoma that the script failed to
register the font.

However, many of the hintfiles installed automatically have no Location
entries, and some even lack FontName.  In particular, the defoma-ps.hints
file installed by  /usr/bin/defoma-psfont-installer from a PPD file has
neither FontName nor Location entries.

I had to add Location manually to gsfonts.hints, gsfonts-other.hints,
and scalable-cyrfonts.hints.  I also see that xfree86-nonfree-type1.hints
lacks Location lines.
