When I run 'mkfontdir' on my /usr/share/fonts/truetype directory the
resulting fonts.dir has no entries and consequently X doesn't find any
fonts there. Why doesn't mkfontdir recognize truetype fonts and/or is
there some alternate program to generate the fonts.dir file for truetype
fonts and if so what package is it in?
