It is worth noting that both TeX systems in Debian (teTeX and TeX Live)
already contain the URWVN fonts. However, these are not setup for usage
with X11/fontconfig. In order to reduce duplication one could either
build only a small package which would add X11/fontconfig support to the
fonts in the TeX packages. Or one could build a separate package for
these fonts which has both TeX and X11/fontconfig support, similar to
the lmodern package. The URWVN fonts could then be removed form the TeX
packages in question.
