I am a stupid idiot for posting a FAQ, but...

...I'm going to do it anyway.

OK, I've been using the phase2 4.0.1 .debs since they came out, with 
relatively few problems.  I like how easy Dexter made it to make a 
config file, but I did notice that I seem to have lost a lot of my 
fonts when I did so (I seem to lack scalable fonts, and I'd like 
TrueType font support).

But that's not the FAQ (although if that problem could be solved, it'd 
be nice).

The FAQ is this:

Based on a discussion in another list (debian-vote), I decided to try 
out konquerer, to see if it would really work, as advertised, as a 
viable alternative to Netscape Navigator.

The bright ones here will be saying "Oh gods, he's going to ask about 
libGLU, isn't he?"

I know that true support for libGLU won't happen until it gets 
integrated upstream, which is held up because libGLU is in C++, and the 
rest of X is in C.  I know that Branden won't sully his X debs with 
libGLU support until that's taken care of.  So I'm not going to ask for 
that to be done.

I'm not even going to ask why KDE seems to require the use of libGLU.  
Even if someone told me, it wouldn't make a difference.  I'd still have 
the problem.

What I want to know is if anyone knows of a work-around until the 
situation is fixed properly.  I suspect that this has been answered 
before, but I can't seem to find it.

Sorry to ask this FAQ.  My only hope is that my style of asking it was 
sufficiently entertaining and self-deprecating enough to allow me to 
get away with it.
