Yep, sure is different! I have no /etc/conf.d or /etc/conf.avail directories at all!!
There is a nice /etc/fonts directory now. The conf.d and conf.avail is in there, and neither of them mention all the texmf and texlive fonts.
I think I saw a message from a Debian texlive maintainer (Norbert??) that since many of these fonts don't work with fontconfig, this is not activated 'out of the box' ... also if you do searches for this, other people are talking about it, Red Hat is enabling it ... I wonder how useful and how easy it would be to add all or some of these fonts. TeX has SOO many fonts, so it would be awesome to add them to X!!
